Sir John Sawers is due to take over as chief of the Secret Intelligence Service in November, putting him in charge of all Britain's spying operations abroad. But his wife's entries on the social networking site have exposed potentially compromising details about where they live and work, who their friends are and where they spend their holidays.

Dear online advertisers, stop following me. It’s creepy

I already have the secret to Asian hair: be Asian. This ad, however, would not be avoided. I saw it on every site I visited, on Facebook, news sites, Google.
