The Facebook founder and CEO has been spotted with a piece of tape covering up his webcam and microphone in what appears to be a way of stopping his computer from spying on him.Mr Zuckerberg’s DIY privacy protection was spotted in a picture – first pointed out in a tweet by Chris Olson – that was intended to celebrate Instagram reaching 500 million monthly users.But if it's good enough for the creator of the largest social network on the planet, maybe it's worth sticking some tape on your own webcam.You won't look paranoid anymore; instead, you can call yourself a billionaire tech mogul in training.“I put a piece of tape — I have obviously a laptop, personal laptop — I put a piece of tape over the camera.Because I saw somebody smarter than I am had a piece of tape over their camera." The FBI itself is reported to have used technology that can hack into webcams and allow it to spy on targets.Find a free live cam you like, click on it and start your free cam show.

This kind of thinking used to be the domain of conspiracy theorists and a certain breed of hacker, but Zuckerberg just took it mainstream. Robot, the show about a hacker conspiracy, USA Networks even went so far as to send out branded webcam covers (which this journalist happily uses).
No, government spies probably don't care what you're saying or doing in front of your computer.
The power that the devices on our desks and in our pockets have to monitor us was demonstrated earlier this month by the suggestion that Facebook was able to listen in on microphones.
This inadvertent reveal comes just weeks after Zuckerberg's social media accounts were hacked, one of which reportedly had the not-so-complicated password "dadada." And if Zuckerberg's hacker background and role as a major tech leader aren't enough to convince you that he isn't just being paranoid, consider the fact that earlier this year FBI Director James Comey admitted that he puts tape over his webcam.
