Mark Zuckerberg denies Facebook's involvement with PRISM

Mark Zuckerberg
I want to respond personally to the outrageous press reports about PRISM:

Facebook is not and has never been part of any program to give the US or any other government direct access to our servers. We have never received a blanket request or court order from any government agency asking for information or metadata in bulk, like the one Verizon reportedly received. And if we did, we would fight it aggressively. We hadn't even heard of PRISM before yesterday.

When governments ask Facebook for data, we review each request carefully to make sure they always follow the correct processes and all applicable laws, and then only provide the information if is required by law. We will continue fighting aggressively to keep your information safe and secure.

We strongly encourage all governments to be much more transparent about all programs aimed at keeping the public safe. It's the only way to protect everyone's civil liberties and create the safe and free society we all want over the long term.

I do seem to notice one glaring flaw in the whole PRISM program.

In it, it shows Google having joined in 2009, then Youtube in 2010. The problem with that is that Google bought Youtube... in 2007.

PRISM could very well be a hoax. That doesn't diminish the other, highly troubling revelations we've seen so far, but this one may not be real.
