Obama’s 2012 Campaign is Collecting Your Online Activities

OBAMA ERA: NO PRIVACY
Publicly, the Obama and his administration say they want online privacy protections for consumers. But privately, the Obama’s re-election campaign is collecting personal information off the internet to find new voters. They are “tapping the rich data Internet companies hold on millions of potential voters,” reported the liberal news site Politico.com.

All that data mining should be very easy for Obama since two of his great pals are the CEOs of Facebook and Google.

Via Breitbart.com:

As Politico reports today, the Obama re-election campaign is gathering data on potential voters. Worse, as we’ve found, BarackObama.com, the campaign website, states that it shares personal information with some parties other than the consumer, including “vendors, consultants and other service providers or volunteers” as well as “candidates, organizations, groups or causes that we believe have similar political viewpoints, principles or objectives.”

This should be troubling to liberals who supposedly care about the right to privacy. Where’s their ire now?

From Politico via Weasel Zippers:

Obama for America has already invested millions of dollars in sophisticated Internet messaging, marketing and fundraising efforts that rely on personal data sometimes offered up voluntarily — like posts on a Facebook page— but sometimes not.

And according to a campaign official and former Obama staffer, the campaign’s Chicago-based headquarters has built a centralized digital database of information about millions of potential Obama voters.

It all means Obama is finding it easier than ever to merge offline data, such as voter files and information purchased from data brokers, with online information to target people with messages that may appeal to their personal tastes. Privacy advocates say it’s just the sort of digital snooping that his new privacy project is supposed to discourage.
