I'm not very active on Facebook but I was surprised when, a week ago, I got a notice, purportedly from two of my Facebook "friends", that was a campaign pitch for the Tories. The message said they were backing prime minister Harper and hoped I would too.
It turns out that neither one of these guys is supporting the Tories nor had they any idea of how their names (including profile pix) got onto the message I received.
Is this a new form of voter manipulation? Are the Tories hacking into Facebook accounts for info to send campaign messages? Anybody else had this experience?
