How NSA is tracking us on Facebook

current affairs

Posted May 18, 2018 09:08:00The U.S. National Security Agency is using Facebook’s network for its “informed mail delivery” program, which uses the social network’s data to collect information about people, including their social media activity and location, and is able to track the people’s movements and interests.

The NSA has been using the Facebook network for the past six years to help track down suspected terrorists and foreign spies, according to documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The NSA has used Facebook’s platform for information-gathering for the NSA’s PRISM surveillance program, the documents said.

The information-mining program uses a combination of the data gathered by Facebook’s algorithm and the data collected by the company’s servers, the sources said.

It has also used Facebook data for “data collection on social network users.”

The program began last year, and the documents do not mention when it began.

Facebook has said that it is not aware of the program, but the documents did not name a specific company.

“This is the most comprehensive collection of information ever gathered by the NSA,” Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO, said in a statement.

“We’re committed to protecting the privacy of our users and we’re working hard to strengthen privacy protections across our platform.”

The NSA does not have the ability to use Facebook’s servers to collect data on U.N. personnel or foreign diplomats, the disclosures said.

Facebook declined to comment on the program.

Agency documents showed that the NSA uses information from Facebook’s server to track down people who are not U.T. employees.

The documents said the agency has used the data to “assess the likelihood of a U.K. person traveling to the United States in the future” or to help “detect potential terrorist activities” in the United Kingdom.

The document also said the NSA was able to “follow a UYU student in India” to a Uyum, India, hotel.

The documents also showed that in 2016, Facebook said that the government has asked it to assist with a UU student visa program.

Facebook said in the documents that it “has not been requested” to help the government in any way.

The UU program is a program where U.U. citizens in the U.C.L.A. area can apply to be considered for U.D. visas, which are used to temporarily stay in the country and work on UU-related projects.
