Assange : Facebook Being Used By U.S. Government To Spy On Citizens
An official WikiLeaks page has attracted 1.72million 'likes' on Facebook.
But that hasn't stopped 'Leaks leader Julian Assange blasting the social networking site as 'the most appalling spying machine ever invented.'
In an interview with Russia Today Assange said Facebook was one of the top tools for the U.S. Government to spy on its citizens.
'Here we have the world's most comprehensive database about people, their relationships, their names, their addresses, their locations, their communications with each other and their relatives, all sitting within the United States, all accessible to U.S. Intelligence,' he said.
'Facebook, Google, Yahoo, all these major U.S. organisations have built-in interfaces for U.S. intelligence.
'Everyone should understand that when they add their friends to Facebook they are doing free work for the United States intelligence agencies,' he added.
