Currently, they only mention digital written conversation. Scary enough,
but what will happen when Facebook steps into the VoIP business (like
Google already has)?

ANP - April 25, 2014
"The governments of the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK
have simultaneously announced heavy savings on their respective Defence
budgets. The savings arise from the decommisioning of the ECHELON
Signals Intelligence network, which has become obsolete by the
information sharing agreement that Facebook and the governments signed
last week. In exchange for first-hand demographic information and
10-year exclusive advertisement rights for passports, Facebook has
agreed to open its conversation archive to security officials. A few
individuals have tried to incite public outcry over this development but
nobody seems to notice as these people have a pitiful amount of friends
on Facebook."

Yes, this could use a good looking into :)
