For all my troubles with Google+

they’ve never pulled anything quite as brazen as this:

Facebook patented an API to make it easier for law-enforcement agencies (NSA et. al.) to retrieve data on Facebook users.

So, not only were they denying giving this information to the government, not only were they building tools to make it easy for the government, they went to the trouble to patent these tools.

Well played, Facebook. Well played.
