Recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy about the US and social media. The claims are ungrounded. After the leaks by NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed that the NSA collected data from Facebook users, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckeberg expressed his disapproval of the NSA’s actions and said that he had spoken to then president Barack Obama by phone to “express [his] frustration over the damage the government is creating for all of our futures.”
