Facebook Will Now Kind Enough To Alert You If The Government Is Spying On You

If you’ve ever noticed the NSA or GCHQ liking and then very quickly unliking your posts, there’s a good chance the state is spying on you. The digital faux pas has fast become a mainstay of modern-day clumsiness. (If you know the pain of having accidentally posted the name of the person you were trying to Facebook stalk as a status, you’ll know what I mean.) However, if you happen to see that a government agency has posted your name as a status, you’re definitely in crosshairs.

But fear not – help is at hand. Mark Zuckerberg’s team have announced that they will let individuals know if they think they are being spied on by “state-sponsored actors”. This special alert will appear to let you know that Facebook suspects you’re under attack from a government-backed hacker.
