Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, had called the U.S. President Barack Obama to complain about the National Security Agency’s spying.
Zuckerberg has expressed his displeasure at the Government Agency’s snooping into people’s lives, by writing a post at his Facebook page.
This is not the first time Facebook has spoken out against the NSA.
