The most popular social networking site Facebook was accused by WikiLeaks editor in chief to be "the most appalling spying machine that has ever been invented."
In an interview with Russia Today, the Australian journalist Julian Assange said that almost all the popular US-based sites like Google, Facebook and Yahoo allow US intelligence authorities to access the data of millions of their users through a "specially designed user interface."
The founder of the whistle-blowing site who is facing sexual charges in Sweden implied that all the users' stored information can be accessed by the US government.
Currently based in London, the 39-year-old Assange told RT, "Here we have the world's most comprehensive database about people, their relationships, their names, their addresses, their locations, their communications with each other, their relatives, all sitting within the United States, all accessible to U.S. intelligence.
"They have an interface that they have developed for US intelligence to use. Now is it the case that Facebook is actually run by US intelligence? No it's not like that. It's simply that U.S. intelligence is able to bring to bear legal and political pressure to them and it's costly for them to hand out records one by one so they have automated the process."
