US Gov. Software Creates ‘Fake People’ on Social Networks to Promote Propaganda – Project Nsearch

“The US government is offering private intelligence companies contracts to create software to manage ‘fake people’ on social media sites and create the illusion of consensus on controversial issues.
The contract calls for the development of ‘Persona Management Software’ which would help the user create and manage a variety of distinct fake profiles online. The job listing was discussed in recently leaked emails from the private security firm HBGary after an attack by internet activist last week.”

What’s next? It’s only a very short step to Fake Voters to Rig Opinion Polls, Referenda/ums & Elections (it’ll be a lot cheaper than having to persuade, disinform, bribe & pay real voters)!
