Facebook security

Introduction

With more than 1 billion users worldwide, Facebook is the undisputed king of Internet social media. Unlike the early years of social media, however, when Myspace ruled, and Facebook was largely unknown, social networks have now proliferated to a point where they sometimes seem like separate “Internets” unto themselves.

It is a debate that, in many ways, is really just beginning and whose repercussions will be felt for many years – perhaps decades – to come.

Snowden is the former National Security Agency (NSA) contract employee who, this past June, released a huge cache of top-secret documents related to US government covert surveillance programs on its own citizens and on various governments and government entities around the world.
