Social Media Surveillance​ in Russia

I came across this website that was recently posted and it explains how Russia is now creating a cyber intelligence task force to keep track of the use of social media, specifically in relation to decreasing extremist content. This relates back to a recent unit that we just covered in class about surveillance, and as a class, we discussed if tracking down the actions of citizens should be allowed just because it is conducted by the government. Personally, I don’t believe any information should be tracked, and people have the right to have their own privacy, even online. The government of Russia has tried as early as 2002 to try and control their country’s actions and limiting them, but it is clear that the majority do not like this and continue to go against it, despite the consequences.
