Rather hypocritical of the social media guys

"Please do not perform mass surveillance as we do not like competition"

I would not assume benign motives for the likes of Google and Facebook, as far as I can tell they are most likely just busy protecting the income they get from selling data to government themselves. Too strict laws on data collection would harm them far more than their government competition..
