In just a few short years, social networks have become deeply entrenched as a means for consumers and businesses to connect online. Consumers spend more time on social networks than on any other category of sites, according to the latest social media report from NM Incite/Nielsen. That amounts to roughly 20 percent of their total time online using personal computers and 30 percent using mobile devices. Total time spent on social media in the U.S. across PCs and mobile devices has increased 37 percent to 121 billion minutes in July 2012.

No -- Authorities should monitor social networks to gather intelligence.
No -- Social networks are no different than phone carriers or mail services.
