Facebook is greatest spy vehicle ever created

Assange now backs Mathaba's 3 years old claim that Facebook is the greatest spy system ever created


WikiLeaks founder and Australia citizen Julian Assange called Facebook the "greatest espionage tool in history", in  an exclusive interview to RT.com, confirming what Mathaba already reported about Facebook many years earlier, as well as Google and Yahoo among other close runner-ups.

Facebook automatically collects confidential data of the registered site users, and Mathaba and now Assange have alleged that this information is then transferred to the U.S. intelligence which provided seed funding for Zuckerberg's Facebook.

Assange said that we are dealing with "a very detailed database about people, their habits, their social ties, addresses, places of residence, relatives, and all these data is located in the United States and available to U.S. intelligence."

In answer to a question concerning the role of social networks Facebook and Twitter in the recent chaos in the Arab countries with the notable exception of Israel, leading to thousands of deaths, Assange, who is himself funded by the jewish international elitist financier George Soros, said that "Facebook in particular is the most disgusting of all espionage tools ever invented."

He said that the users should be aware that in adding a contact on Facebook they are working for American intelligence, updating its database, free of charge without any effort nor cost on the part of the CIA. Further, it is easy for other intelligence agencies to either hack Facebook, or get this information from the Americans in exchange for some other services, he pointed out. 

Assange confirmed Mathaba's allegations which preceded the creation of WikiLeaks by several years, saying that "Facebook, Google and Yahoo, all large American companies, have built-in interfaces for the use by the American intelligence. Does this mean that Facebook is in the hands of the American intelligence? No, it is different. It means that the U.S. intelligence agencies have legal and political means to pressure them."

Assange is currently under luxury house arrest at a millionaire supporter's home in the English countryside, awaiting the review of his complaint regarding the London court decision on his extradition to Sweden, where he is accused of sexual crimes.

Assange's lawyers tend to believe that Sweden is seeking the expulsion in order to give the truth-seeker to the USA. Meanwhile, the most famous debunker of our days, who, in fact, did not debunk anything, is restating elementary truths, Igor Bukker of Pravda points out in coverage of the statement of Assange.

"Recently, Facebook has puzzled some of its users by privacy and security settings, and company founder Mark Zuckerberg strongly opposed the anonymity on the Internet. His statement provoked resistance from the founder of website 4chan Christopher "moot" Poole, who considers that preserving the incognito allows people to reveal themselves in all their stark, unfiltered, brutally primitive beauty."

He points out that the authority, or if you will, popularity of Assange as a "hacker" will not change much in the situation with social networks. "The catchers of people's souls have made the right bet relying on common stupidity," Pravda reported.

Assange's "hacking" has largely relied upon people's ignorance, and the WikiLeaks group, as well as its off-shoot OpenLeaks, have failed to produce a decent web site nor live up to their name and allow leakers to securely leak documents.

Over the last five years almost a billion people worldwide were in the full sense caught in the net, and their number increases exponentially. The leadership of major media outlets requires their employees to register on such social networking sites as Facebook or its Russian analogue VKontakte, the Russian journalist pointed out.

In contrast, Mathaba operates independent social media networks using open source software, that puts the user in control of their content on federated systems.

"The problem of the leakage of data from social networks, Internet services and mobile devices is becoming ever more urgent. There are regular reports that phones and Android platforms iOS preserve photographs, data on the movement of the device and personal data and send them to the network, "Globalist" reports.

On May 1st "Yandex" has acknowledged that it provided the FSB (Russia's former KGB state intelligence organization) with the data of people using the services of Yandex, Pravda reported.

"Psychologists believe that the most popular social networks are based on the principle of the Maslow pyramid. According to this theory, the highest level of needs of the individual is simply self-expression. A network user can not only provide information about themselves, but also display their successes, create audio and video libraries, own albums. Yet, few people think about the information that we so thoughtlessly put on our pages. This information becomes a desirable target for the intelligence services and, as the experience of the American social networks indicates, a great way for creditors to determine our true income. There was recorded a range of cases when mentally unbalanced individuals traced and blackmailed users," "Globalist" reports.

We are no longer able to live without social networking and we will not stop eating fish caught in Japan. Some will continue yelling that it is all lies (like the poisonous "Fukushima" fish), others will continue unsuccessful attempts to resist progress. It would be interesting to find out how the Russian president and other senior officials who opened accounts on Facebook and Twitter are protected from such scrutiny of foreign secret services. It is quite clear why such a question was not posed to Julian Assange. After all, he has repeatedly admitted that his main revelations are yet to come, explaining that the information that has already been revealed is "just the tip of the iceberg."

"However, it is obvious that the Russian President and anyone else with half a brain, will not post any private information onto a social network unless it is Diaspora", Mathaba's ICT Editor said.
