Full description In response to the *[ response to the *[ Guardian]* report that major Internet companies including [ Microsoft], [ Facebook], [ Apple], Google, YouTube, [ Skype], Yahoo, PalTalk, and AOL, have apparently been providing sensitive user data to the National Security Agency (NSA), FSF executive director John Sullivan made the following statement: <blockquote>Massive privacy intrusions like this are to be expected when people shift from storing their media locally and using local software, to storing them on other people's servers and using hosted (Web) applications. Giants like Microsoft, Facebook and Google are vulnerable to government requests for user data, and there are better, more secure ways to share information online. Free software projects like [ GNU MediaGoblin], [ StatusNet], [ Diaspora], [], [ Tahoe-LAFS], [ FreedomBox] and [ SparkleShare] are hard at work creating a less centralized world where users retain control over both their media and the software used to access it, while still getting the social and convenience benefits of the giant centralized -- and compromised -- services.</blockquote>ompromised -- services.</blockquote>
