Under  existing law, social media information communicated
through   behind  password-protected  pages   receives no
reasonable expectation of privacy. The Note argues that the
Fourth  Amendment requires a greater degree of privacy
protection for social media data.  Judicial and  legislative
activity provides indicia of a willingness to reconsider citizens'
reasonable expectation of privacy and reverse an anachronistic
equation of privacy with secrecy. Government monitoring of
private social media pages constitutes a deeply invasive form of
surveillance and, if government agents employ covert tactics to
gain access to private social media networks, then the Fourth
Amendment   controls government  use of that private social
media information.
