It's hard to know exactly what to feel about the revelation that Facebook has been monitoring conversations on its website to out child predators.
Any decent person should want extraordinary steps taken to protect children from vultures who lurk on the Internet. Yet a higher degree of privacy is expected even on a social site such as Facebook, where your personal information was already at risk of being widely disseminated.
Perhaps this new invasion of privacy should be another reminder to everyone — yes, sadly, including deviates — that precautions should be taken when socializing online. You not only may not know who you're really talking to, but you don't know who might be monitoring the conversation.
