236707794_108d0f9a64An amusing story today about what UK security services discovered in a trawl of social media sites to see how vulnerable British military personnel might be to terrorist activity. 


Apparently they found 2000 pics of British soldiers in drag and quite a few of them having sex…

Not sure anyone should be surprised at this but it clearly wasn't what the spooks were after (go here for the squaddie take on this) but this story seems like an interesting twist on the whole issue of exhaust data from social media
Just remember that while the data you are looking for is what you are looking for, there's a whole lot of other stuff going on which might well challenge your assumptions…
