During a public speaking engagement in Ottawa over the weekend, The Intercept's Glenn Greenwald was asked why he and his source, the National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, don't use Facebook. Greenwald's response was predictable and, as usual, contradictory:

"He doesn’t use Facebook because he hates Facebook. They’re one of the worst violators of privacy in history. Nobody should use Facebook.”

Nobody... except for The Intercept.

Even Snowden himself, who "hates Facebook," published an article for The Intercept that features Facebook share options.

Oh, and the official page for the speaking engagement has a Facebook option right above the image featuring Greenwald's photograph.

In case you're wondering whether you can Like The Intercept on Facebook, yes you can and here's where you can do it:

While you're on Facebook, feel free to send a Friend Request to Glenn Greenwald via his Facebook page.

Again, "worst violator of privacy in history." So, using Facebook is terrible unless it's in service of promoting the shoddy, misleading journalism at Greenwald's website.
