    Mark Zuckerberg and President Barack Obama during a town hall meeting at Facebookheadquarters, April, 2011.

    When youre Mark Zuckerberg, you can do things a little differently from everyone else. Worrieabout a pesky construction project next door? Drop $30 million andbuy up a four-pack of your

    neighbors homes. Worried that the NSAs widespread surveillance may undermine everyonestrust in the internet and torpedo your social networking business? Give the President a call.

    Apparently, thats what Zuck did last night, shortly after the websiteFirst Look Mediareportedthat the NSA had been masquerading as a Facebook server in order to infect target computers.Ive called President Obama to express my frustration over the damage the government iscreating for all of our future, Zuckerberg wrote in a note he posted to Facebook today.

    When our engineers work tirelessly to improve security, we imagine were protecting you againcriminals, not our own government.Mark Zuckerberg

    A White House spokeswoman confirmed that Zuckerberg and Obama spoke last night, discussinrecent reports in the press about alleged activities by the U.S. intelligence community, but shedeclined to tell us what exactly was said. It seems, however, that Facebooks CEO and founderdid not get what he wanted. Unfortunately, it seems like it will take a very long time for true fureform, Zuckerberg wrote.Zuckerberg is just one of the many people across Silicon Valley who are concerned about thefuture of the internet now that ex-NSA contractor Edward Snowden has revealed the extent ofthe agencys surveillance programs. Although companies such as Facebook may participate inmany of the agencys efforts, the scope of the NSAs spying has taken even savvy Silicon Valleyinsiders by surprise. Widespread spyingundermines everyones trust in the internet. To keepthe internet strong, we need to keep it secure, Zuckerberg wrote. This is why Ive been soconfused and frustrated by the repeated reports of the behavior of the US government. When

    our engineers work tirelessly to improve security, we imagine were protecting you againstcriminals, not our own government.Things were once better between Zuckerberg and Obama. Just over two years ago, Facebookhosted a town hall meeting where the friendly discussion revolved around the economy.Backthen, the U.S. Federal Trade Commissions scrutiny of Facebooks privacy policieswas the topicmost likely to come up in a private conversation. Since then, the tables have turned, andZuckerberg is now the guy worried about privacy.Today, Zuckerberg called on the feds to be much more transparent about what theyre doing, o

    otherwise people will believe the worst. But that isnt going to happen any time soon. Thoughthe NSA has said that parts of yesterdays reportsare incorrect, there remains much that is stilunclear.
