According to a latest video report from the satirical tabloid and website The Onion, Mark Zuckerberg is an American CIA agent codenamed “The Overlord” and the director of CIA’s “Facebook Program”. The report also confirms Zuckerberg of receiving a “Medal of Intelligence Commendation” for his extraordinary work with the Facebook program.

Just recently, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in an interview with Russia Today called Facebook “the most appalling spy machine that has ever been invented.” Facebook users willingly give out all their information to the site without ever knowing that this information ultimately lands in the hands of CIA. As per Assange, Facebook is not CIA funded but Facebook does provide a secret interface for CIA which allows the agency to collect information about any registered individual.

The information not only includes name, address, connections, pictures, places checked in, phone numbers and work places, but also helps the agency to understand the personality of the user by analyzing his or her shared material, joined groups and liked pages etc.

The report further gimmicks several other popular social media tools such as:

  • Twitter (useless as far as data gathering goes)
  • Foursquare (created by Al Qaeda)
  • Farmville (responsible for pacifying 85 million people after unemployment rates rose)
Facebook has also been accused previously of saving certain tracking cookies in user’s pc to track the sites they visit. This can be confirmed by loging into two totally unrelated Facebook accounts one after the another. Despite no relation between the two accounts, Facebook will show friend recommendations to the 2nd logged in account which will have various friends of the 1st logged in account. This happens because of those saved tracking cookies which Facebook quietly injects into the user’s pc.

Check out the video report embedded below and decide yourself whether Zuckerberg is a Hero or a Villain?
