These were his comment on his Facebook wall
“As the world becomes more complex and governments
everywhere struggle, trust in the internet is more important
today than ever.
The internet is our shared space. It helps us connect. It
spreads opportunity. It enables us to learn. It gives us a
voice. It makes us stronger and safer together.
To keep the internet strong, we need to keep it secure.
That’s why at Facebook we spend a lot of our energy
making our services and the whole internet safer and more
secure. We encrypt communications, we use secure
protocols for traffic, we encourage people to use multiple
factors for authentication and we go out of our way to help
fix issues we find in other people’s services.
The internet works because most people and companies do
the same. We work together to create this secure
environment and make our shared space even better for the
world.
This is why I’ve been so confused and frustrated by the
repeated reports of the behavior of the US government.
When our engineers work tirelessly to improve security, we
imagine we’re protecting you against criminals, not our own
government.
The US government should be the champion for the
internet, not a threat. They need to be much more
transparent about what they’re doing, or otherwise people
will believe the worst.
I’ve 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.
So it’s up to us — all of us — to build the internet we
want. Together, we can build a space that is greater and a
more important part of the world than anything we have
today, but is also safe and secure. I’m committed to seeing
this happen, and you can count on Facebook to do our part.”
