The Future of Social Data [Link]

An interesting look at something that I think it the true future of social data. A credit agency will scrape Facebook to build profiles and track individuals.

So what kind of data does the credit agency actually want to mine? According to the leaked documents, the main thrusts seem to be establishing relationship links between people and keeping tabs on address changes and address history.

This should be not be a surprise to anyone. The sites like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are honey-pots for more than just criminal organizations.
