Super irony on Facebook as a CIA surveillance program

A bit of light relief today as I finally have room in my publication schedule to refer readers to a fabulously ironic production by US satirical comedy site The Onion about Facebook and other social networking sites as extensions of CIA surveillance projects. Look out for lots of additional side-swipes such as the one about Foursquare users.

The extraordinary thing is that a quick Google search reveals that there's quite a history to this whole Facebook CIA conspiracy theory!
