Apparently, that’s what Zuck did last night, shortly after the website First Look Mediareported that the NSA had been masquerading as a Facebook server in order to
infect target computers. “I’ve called President Obama to express my
frustration over the damage the government is creating for all of our
future,” Zuckerberg wrote in a note he posted to Facebook today.
When our engineers work tirelessly to
improve security, we imagine we’re protecting you against criminals, not
our own government.
A White House spokeswoman confirmed that Zuckerberg and Obama spoke
last night, discussing “recent reports in the press about alleged
activities by the U.S. intelligence community,” but she declined to tell
us what exactly was said. It seems, however, that Facebook’s CEO and
founder did not get what he wanted. “Unfortunately, it seems like it
will take a very long time for true full reform,” Zuckerberg wrote.
