Facebook’s Zuckerberg was recently reported angry and called upon the President of the US, Obama, to show his frustration over the recent news of NSA spying on computers by imitating a Facebook page.

In a recent report by Wired, Mark, the Facebook founder, has employed Joe Sullivan, a 45-year-old ex-federal prosecutor, as the Chief Security Officer for the social networking site.

Sullivan said that the company has strengthened its online services from the inside so that such a thing is not possible. Facebook had rolled out their SSL-based security feature for all their online traffic.

Outside security researchers stated that though harder to pull off, Facebook’s encryption could still be compromised.
