Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg on Friday denied that his company gave the government direct access to its servers.

“Facebook is not and has never been part of any program to give the US or any other government direct access to our servers,” Zuckerberg wrote in a post to his Facebook account [2].

“We have never received a blanket request or court order from any government agency asking for information or metadata in bulk, like the one Verizon reportedly received. And if we did, we would fight it aggressively. We hadn’t even heard of PRISM before yesterday.”

The Washington Post reported Thursday that the government had been tapping the servers of nine technology companies to collect emails, videos, photographs, and other data in a classified program known as PRISM.
