    • Sir John Sawers is due to take over as chief of the Secret Intelligence
      Service in November, putting him in charge of all of Britain’s spying
      operations abroad.

      But entries by his wife Shelley on the social networking site have exposed
      potentially compromising details about where they live and work, their
      friends’ identities and where they spend their holidays. On the day her
      husband was appointed she congratulated him on the site using his codename

      Lady Sawers had put virtually no privacy protection on her account, making it
      visible to any of the site’s 200m users around the world who choose to be in
      the open-access London social network on Facebook.
