Tunisian gov't spies on Facebook - does the U.S.?

Facebook 2

jfruhlinger (470035) writes "Tunisians logging into Facebook encountered extra JavaScript, probably a sign of their repressive government's attempt to spy on them. The question is: does the U.S. government do the same thing, just more subtly? We're not talking about agents friending you on Facebook to get more information about you; we're talking monitoring your supposedly private information behind the scenes."

I can't imagine any government with the capability not using such a readily available source of information.
