US Now Asks Foreign Travelers For Social Media Info

Could you imagine being the guy that has to go through all those social media sites for each and every person traveling to the United States? Also, isn't this optional? Are you going to be denied entry to the country because you don't have a Facebook page? How many terrorists are going to have a Facebook page outlining their plans?

Since Tuesday, foreign travelers arriving in the United States on the visa waiver program have been presented with an "optional" request to "enter information associated with your online presence," a government official confirmed Thursday. The prompt includes a drop-down menu that lists platforms including Facebook, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube, as well as a space for users to input their account names on those sites.
