Take down Facebook

Facebook is endangering millions of British citizens through its cavalier approach to users' privacy. It continual push to make more and more user information public (with the occasional strategic backdown for PR purposes) continues to put British people at risk of identity fraud.

The site is storing information such as scraped e-mail contact lists without fully disclosing this to its users. Additionally, it is storing information about people who choose not to subscribe to it, without their consent.

The British government should protect its citizens' freedom by insisting that Facebook discontinue its corrupt practices, or by educating people clearly on the intentions of this malevolent organisation.
