Is There Truth to These Memes?

Grace Kane, Reporter

Due to the sudden uproar in memes about the government watching us through our phone cameras, you start to wonder if this could be true.

All over social media, these memes have covered users’ feeds. People have been making fun of the fact that the government watches people, but no one knows if this phenomenon is true. There have been many theories about different companies watching us while using their apps. The rumors were quickly-squashed public denials.

Why would our spy agencies put aside important surveillance, like watching potential terrorists, to watch me or you through our phone cameras? There are 323 million Americans; they can’t watch everyone.

What do you believe? Is this just a crazy conspiracy theory, or are the memes right? Have we reached a point in American society where we have no privacy?
