Assange calls Facebook the most appalling spying machine ever

Break out the tin foil hats
You know the scenario – starting of righteous, ending up a tin-hatted man. The man behind whistleblowing site Wikileaks has now dubbed Facebook “the most appalling spying machine that has ever been invented.”

Assange said that the social networking site is the most comprehensive database containing people’s relationships, addresses, locations, communications, etc. He argued that the data is in the US and thus directly accessible to US intelligence.

Assange said:”Facebook, Google, Yahoo, all these major U.S. organizations have built-in interfaces for U.S. intelligence". He pointed out that the US intelligence is not actually running Facebook but that every time you add friends, you’re doing their work for free by building a database.

Of course, Assange forgets to note that most of these pieces of the Man’s database are as irrelevant as they get. Seriously, 1,285 profile pictures of yourself is not something the US intelligence is dying to rummage through.
