Mark Zuckerberg Says Government Should Be More Transparent About Spying

Facebook Inc CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the U.S. government’s surveillance is hurting Internet users’ trust, at an event hosted by The Atlantic magazine in Washington on Wednesday.

“What I can tell from the data that I see at Facebook is that I think the more transparency and communication the government could do about how they’re requesting the data from us, the better everyone would feel about it,” he said at the event, according to a report in Reuters.

Zuckerberg accused the National Security Agency of making unhelpful statements and of hurting relationships with countries around the globe. “Oh, we only spy on non-Americans.’ Gee thanks,” Zuckerberg said, adding, “We’re trying to provide an international service, not get crushed in those places either.”
