Facebook says immigration officials can't create fake accounts

Facebook says immigration officials can't create fake accounts. New policy changes from the Department of Homeland Security stipulate that employees at US Citizenship and Immigration Services can create fictitious accounts on social media to investigate the social media presence of an applicant for citizenship or a visa. Facebook says this breaks their policies against fake accounts, and that “[l]aw enforcement officials, like everyone else, are required to use their real names on Facebook.” The government says reviewing publicly available information on social media is a “common sense measure” to strengthen their vetting process.
