With Facebook now under federal investigation, we take a look back on its beginnings with DARPA and the CIA
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, began a total surveillance program in 2003 called LifeLog.
Interestingly, the LifeLog project was terminated at approximately the same time that Facebook was founded.
Shortly after, the CIA began investing in venture capital firm In-Q-Tel, which helped mine the user data of millions.
As this information begins to surface, top executives are leaving Facebook.
Now, Facebook is under investigation for potential privacy breaches.
