Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg Calls Obama in Frustration over Spying

Mark Zuckerberg Facebook SXSWi 2008 Keynote

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, has posted on his Facebook that he has called Obama to express his opinion on Government spying of the internet. He wrote in his post:

“I’ve called President Obama to express my frustration over the damage the government is creating for all of our future. Unfortunately, it seems like it will take a very long time for true full reform.”

This post from Zuckerberg has come after a few days of the new revelations that NSA had used its fake Facebook servers in spying people. He writes in the post that his company has been improving security but it never came to his mind that his social network will also need to be protected from the government of United States. He further writes:

“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 our own government.”

He said he told Obama that actions of the government are not right for the future of Internet. He committed to keep Facebook’s users secure but also said that government needs to keep transparency in mind in its operations.
