And what’s the difference between PRISM and the Immersion Project and LinkedIn, which goes through each and every one of your email contacts (and probably emails, too) to look for ‘linkages’ between people.
You gotta read those “Terms and Conditions” before you join social networking websites. They are NO different than the federal government. You have ZERO privacy when you join them.
I do NOT belong to facebook, twitter, linkedin, my space, etc. for that very reason.
Keep in mind those social services do GIVE you a FREE membership to their services in return for the right to collect your data/info. If you don't want your data mined them DON'T join their service.
However, the fact that the NSA is collecting EVERYTHING WITHOUT ASKING me, you, or anyone else is a totally different situation and it's unconstituional.
The NSA is not doing anything other than snooping on everyone without authorization other than the power they have bestowed upon themselves to do it.
