PRISM there privacy on the internet?

We all love the social networking, talking about what we feel and sharing to our friends about some of the latest updates on Facebook, using our beloved mobile phones, tablets and ultrabooks. But with the recent leak information on the internet about PRISM project, those of you who think that your privacy is protected, think again.

Both Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Larry Page of Google strongly denied giving unfettered access to user data to U.S. officials. In fact, the two of them claimed to be pretty surprised and shocked to hear about PRISM. Do you believe them?

Zuckerberg described allegations that Facebook gave 'US or any other government direct access to our servers' as 'outrageous.' He also denied any link between his company with the secret government data-sharing scheme PRISM. 

Google CEO Larry Page said in a statement that resembled deeply the one issued by Zuckerberg, 'We have not joined any program that would give the U.S. government—or any other government—direct access to our servers,'. According to Larry Page, he has not heard of the PRISM until the news. 

However, there are now sources that tell New York Times that both Facebook and Google discussed plans to create secure portals for the government 'like a digital version of the secure physical rooms that have long existed for classified information' with U.S. officials.

So, you think your privacy is secured when you make a phone call, send an email etc? What do you think?
