One of my professors was a high ranking CIA operative for over thirty years, and told me that this is essentially true, and then he explained that this even goes beyond Facebook (put it this way, you can't shut your webcam off).
It should be noted, however, that an American citizen cannot be surveillance without a warrant; yet, we must consider that such warrants are probably not as hard for the CIA to get as it would be for a different (less powerful/important) organization. Anything you willingly post and make public online (e.g. Facebook or Twitter) is fair game however, and no warrants are required as such content is public domain.
Random friend requests from unknown women—usually far too attractive to want anything to do with you—are often means of doing just that, if not by the government, then by industrial intelligence or marketing groups (e.g. perspective employee screenings).

Even though I'm sure that government agencies have, and do monitor certain social networking sites, this particular piece is supposed to be a joke disguised as real news.
I would caution people about giving out too much personal information, but rather than completely shutting down your Facebook for example, just limit what you display there. These social sites can be a great aid in getting our nationalist message out, which is basically all I use mine for.
I also know that Facebook has shut down many a "Hate" account and will not hesitate to leak any information to ZOG. I canceled my account about a year ago. It is very easy to track a person on Facebook and the very fact that the ARA knew about the meeting in Chicago tells me that they kept tabs on any "hate" activity on, not just Facebook, but forums as well. I know snail-male is very slow, but it's more secure than even an e-mail.
