Social media monitoring could save lives?


Are we already heading toward the future spelled out in Minority Report (think Enemy of the State and Minority Report meet Facebook and Google Earth)? If they had really known the future I wonder if they would have called the movie the Google Report (doesn't sound as threatening does it). It might already be happening, every day there might be a feed going to government and law enforcement agencies from Facebook to detect sentiment and analyze posts for suicidal or violent personality profiles and then monitoring all their online behavior for patterns that could lead to a crime or suicide.
