MI6 recruits new agents via Facebook
According to The Guardian, MI6 is using Facebook to recruit the next crop of James Bonds. In the past the Secret Intelligence Service has usually recruited potential spies from the country’s top universities.
But now it has launched an online campaign targeting Facebook users to try and get down with the kids. With a number of high profile stories of absent-minded MI6 agents leaving suitcases full of top secret documents on trains it begs the question if Facebookers would make good secret agents?
Secrecy and Facebook aren't exactly happy bedfellows. We can just see the status post now: “Bill is Burma on a secret mission for the MI6, but will be back for pints on Friday.”
