[liberationtech] Facebook Group Encryption Chrome Extension

Interesting and a much-needed service, given the staggering amount of data
collection that Facebook does.  I work at Abine, a privacy startup in
Boston, and we made an encrypted Facebook chat a couple months ago.  Here's
a link, with the caveat that Facebook changes their code weekly and we
haven't updated in a few months:  http://www.abine.com/facebook.php

Facebook goes out of its way to make it hard for developers to give members
privacy & encryption options.  As always, user data = money.
