This is but one of the reasons why I'm not active on facebook
This is but one of the reasons why I'm not active on facebook
According to Snowden documents they were leading partner for agencies in running a disinformation campaign to prevent protests. The other reason is that I don't like being profiled for marketing.

Quote:In the second part of an interview with The Guardian, US whistleblower Edward Snowden's has claimed that companies like Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft got together with the National Security Agency (NSA) to provide 'direct access' to back ends of all of communicating systems. He added the NSA doesn't limit itself to foreign intelligence.


It makes big headlines in todays European IT news with a quite detailed story about how facebook and the NSA walked hand in hand to destroy the Occupy Wallstreet movement.
