Zuckerberg talks about the NSA
At the Silicon Valley “Disrupt” event, Mark Zuckerberg was questioned about the NSA and how they handled user data.
The question was structure in a way that showed how Facebook has more data than any 1 entity in the entire world, with 1.1+ billion users.
To Mark’s credit Facebook has tried to do many things over the last few months to increase transparency in what data is shared and what isn’t.
Mark responded by saying that it’s Facebook job to protect everyone that uses Facebook’s information in terms of what they share with Facebook. He then went on to say that it’s the government’s job to protect our freedoms and the economy.
Mark said that the number of requests made by the government for data was around 9,000 in total in the last half a year.
