How much could someone find out about me by looking at a record of who I've e-mailed, phoned or texted? A worrying amount, I'd say!

Claims that the French government is harvesting huge amounts of data about people's digital activity come hot on the heels of similar revelations about mass surveillance in the US and UK.

I'm not surprised that governments scrutinise some digital information. But I'm shocked it's so widespread and that governments are being so secretive about it. If what they're doing isn't wrong, surely they've got nothing to hide?
