Facebook Responds to Privacy Violations of Tunisian Citizens
The country of Tunisia is in a state of unrest and dissent as millions tune in to follow the anti-government protests taking place. In a recent news story, social media giant Facebook noticed suspicious activity as reports came in regarding the hacking of several political-protest pages. Tunisians attributed the cyber attacks to the censoring of their country’s Internet and attempts to steal social media passwords. Taking a purely technical (and non-political) approach to the situation, Facebook coded a two-step response to the problem, which allowed for all Tunisian requests for Facebook to be routed to an https server and implemented a procedure that would require users logging in to identify friends’ photos by name.
