Leave Facebook if you don't want to be spied on

So many of us are addicted to biggest social media website Facebook and they post each and every feeling, activity or memory of theirs on Facebook. While they are sharing that with people added do they know someone is seeing them? Yes someone is constantly spying on them.

The European Commission has warned EU citizens that they should close their Facebook accounts if they want to keep information private from US security services, finding that current Safe Harbour legislation does not protect citizen’s data.

The comments were made by EC attorney Bernhard Schima in a case brought by privacy campaigner Maximilian Schrems, looking at whether the data of EU citizens should be considered safe if sent to the US in a post-Snowden revelation landscape.

“You might consider closing your Facebook account, if you have one,” Schima told attorney general Yves Bot in a hearing of the case at the European court of justice in Luxembourg.

When asked directly, the commission could not confirm to the court that the Safe Harbour rules provide adequate protection of EU citizens’ data as it currently stands.

So the foreigners are having a vulnerable life but I am afraid the security concern around the world may lead spying of everyone who uses Facebook. Tough it seems difficult but take it as a warning. Facebook declined to comment.
