Facebook CEO called Obama over gov`t surveillance
MARCH 15, 2014 05:27  
"The government should be a champion for the Internet, not a threat."

Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on his social media page Thursday that he had called U.S. President Barack Obama and told him so.

On his Facebook page, he said, "I뭭e called President Obama to express my frustration over the damage the government is creating for all of our future. Unfortunately, it seems like it will take a very long time for true full reform," indicating that his telephone conversation with the U.S. president did not make any significant progress.

Zuckerberg`s remarks can be interpreted that Obama did not accept his call for a full reform of U.S. intelligence agencies` surveillance of cyberspace.

Some say that the Facebook chief disclosed the phone conversation with the U.S. president in order to win support from Internet users on the issue he raised to Obama. Zuckerberg did not specify when he had the telephone conversation and how.

Major U.S. media outlets cited online news magazine The Intercept on Wednesday as reporting that the U.S. intelligence community has masqueraded as Facebook in order to carry out attacks against targets through an operation called "Turbine."
