On Feb. 5, 2014, we here at Examiner first brought you the breaking news, which Facebook made known in a press release by its General Counsel that they were providing the United States Government access to Facebook user data due to national security requests they received.
We asked a hard question, “Has the United States Government been reading your Facebook Page”. Facebook said they would continue to update these “Transparency Report” which they were advice account holders of the governments request as a way of insuring that it wasn't really a big deal but they needed permission from the government first.
Just days ago we brought you news of Yahoo’s new Chief Security Officer. “Yahoo officials and Stamos could not be reached for comment on his appointment, which was announced Monday on the company's blog by Yahoo Senior Vice President Jay Rossiter.” – Jim Finkle, Reuters
Stamos worked the US government’s secret surveillance program.
Is our internet under attack by our government?
In the last 24 hours, news has come out that Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, the number one top social media site had called the president. Yes, that is right, “Hello Mr. President, Mark Zucherberg here.”
In Mark’s statement, which he released on his own personal Facebook page he shares his concerns, “I’ve been so confused and frustrated by the repeated reports of the behavior of the US government. When our engineers work tirelessly to improve security, we imagine we’re protecting you against criminals, not out own government.”
Apparently this was all caused by a recent statement released earlier on Thursday, March 13, 2014, which the National Security Agency's released a statement in response to recent media reports that allege the NSA has infected millions of computers around the world malware and that the NSA is impersonating U.S. social media or other websites are inaccurate.
This information was leaked and posted out by The Intercept, on Wednesday. The agency seems to have headquarters in Maryland, UK and Japan.
Who would think so many press statements would be made due to inaccurate or false statements, in just the past two months about the government and internet security, which would bring about denial and a call to the United States President from a young CEO by a social media site?
How do you feel about all this talk of government spying?
Do you believe the government has a right to hack into your social media accounts, listen in on your phone conversations? Next thing you know they’ll be watching us in our homes. What has the world come too that we are government by tyrants.
