PRISM Is Just the Social Network You Never Knew You Signed Up For

Afraid of PRISM? Think it sounds like a horrible government-sanctioned infringement on your privacy? You're just thinking about it wrong. It's a social network! It's for sharing! And accounts are mandatory!

Whipped up by the folks at Datacoup—a service that aims to let you "reclaim and unlock the value of your personal data"—GetPrsm pitches government surveillance as a just another social network, one with all the users and tons of frictionless sharing features. Funny cuz it's true.


You have to hand it to PRISM, though. It's got an all-star team of high tech partners, state of the art data centers, and comprehensive data collection, all without you having to lift a single finger! When you put it that way, it almost sounds fun. Good thing you've already got an account! [GetPrsm via Reddit]
