Facebook News Byte: France Has A PRISM-Like Program With Thousands Of Trillions Of Metadata Elements

Sacrebleu! The NSA isn't the only security agency to collect data. In fact, France's PRISM-like program is going very strong with thousands of trillions of metadata elements stored in a Parisian basement, according to a report from French newspaper Le Monde. The program targets phone communications, emails and data from Internet giants, such as Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft and Yahoo! It is deemed illegal by the CNIL, the French data protection authority but it is not as clear as it seems. Nasdaq argued in federal court that it cannot be sued by class-action because of its legal status as a self-regulatory organization. Nasdaq is being sued over the botched Facebook IPO. Silly in nature, stickers could help Facebook's messaging products appeal to younger users gravitating toward other apps. In an effort to boost messaging, the social networking site announced that members can now send stickers to each other in private messages from the Web.
