Facebook Sends Letter Asking DEA to Stop Violating its Terms of Service

0

It was only recently that the DEA got caught impersonating a woman on Facebook in an attempt to catch criminals who contacted her. Facebook wasn't pleased about it then and now it is taking steps to prevent similar future occurrences..

Earlier this week Facebook sent a letter asking the agency to promise that it will not create fake accounts or otherwise violate the social network's terms of service. As the site argues, the DEA's actions "threaten the integrity" of its user base. The point of Facebook's real identity policy is to foster trust, and DEA sting operations violate that trust.

It's not certain if the letter will have much effect. The Justice Department tells BuzzFeed News that it doesn't believe this sort of thing happens frequently.
