Google Search Encryption, ‘Social Velocity’ and the NSA Using Facebook

Google is moving toward “a global expansion of privacy technology designed to thwart surveillance by government intelligence agencies, police and hackers” http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/03/12/google-is-encrypting-search-worldwide-thats-bad-for-the-nsa-and-china/?wpisrc=nl_eve

Discovered this neat site today – http://www.newswhip.com is a “people powered news” site ranks stories based on “social velocity.” Writers can check how viral their online articles are. The site also ranks writers on a “Creator Leaderboard” http://www.newswhip.com/creators/leaderboard.

First Look Media’s The Intercept published reports that the National Security Agency used Facebook to install malware on millions of user PCs around the globe. https://firstlook.org/theintercept/article/2014/03/12/nsa-plans-infect-millions-computers-malware/ Facebook published its global government requests covering the first six months of 2013 here: https://www.facebook.com/about/government_requests
