Too many people share far too much private information on their own.<quoted text>
NSA is old news, PRISM is new.
If you are worrier about privacy why do you post on Topix, send emails, use a smart phone (if you do) etc.
Digital communications are easy to collect.
The UK seems also doing this:
(Reuters)- Britain intercepted phone calls and monitored computers used by officials taking part in two high-level international finance meetings in London in 2009, a British newspaper said on Sunday.
The Guardian said some delegates from countries in the Group of 20 - which comprises top economies around the world - used Internet cafes that had been set up by British intelligence agencies to read their emails.
The report was published hours before leaders of the Group of Eight countries - all of which are in the G20 - start a two-day summit in Northern Ireland.
But it's who's looking at what we don't voluntarily share and what they might do with it that's worrisome.
