It comes as no surprise that Facebook's main man, CEO Mark Zuckerberg, directly communicated his frustrations to the White House in a phone call to President Obama late Wednesday evening.
This call came after reports emerged Wednesday that the NSA has been infiltrating users' computers by impersonating Facebook servers and inserting malicious spyware.
Edward Snowden's mission was to bring to light NSA misconduct. He has handed down a series of reports via his media tool, The Intercept, in an attempt to awaken citizens' awareness of the cyber community and question the issue of cyber privacy.
Mark Zuckerberg has responded by taking this NSA attack personally. After making the call to the White House, he further went on to make a public statement in a Facebook post expressing his sincere concern and dissatisfaction with the NSA late yesterday evening.
“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,” Zuckerberg said.
Oozing with dissatisfaction, he goes on to comment about the lack of integrity the US Government has displayed in their ploy to "strengthen" security, saying that, “When our engineers work tirelessly to improve security, we imagine we're protecting you against criminals, not our own government...The US Government should be the champion for the Internet, not a threat. They need to be much more transparent about what they're doing, or otherwise people will believe the worst.”
With the conviction that improvements are far from reach, Zuckerberg addressed the general public, giving incentive for action on their behalf and taking matters in their own hands, alongside the Facebook team. He said: “So it's up to us -- all of us -- to build the Internet we want. Together, we can build a space that is greater and a more important part of the world than anything we have today, but is also safe and secure. I'm committed to seeing this happen, and you can count on Facebook to do our part.”
NSA refutes the allegations in a report, claiming, “NSA does not use its technical capabilities to impersonate US company websites. Nor does NSA target any user of global Internet services without appropriate legal authority. Reports of indiscriminate computer exploitation operations are simply false.”
Edward has began a revolution, but the lingering question remains: to what scale will this movement escalate, as public awareness grows, and more and more companies are opposing the NSA?
