According to a report by MSNBC, US government agencies and colleges are now demanding access to applicants’ Facebook accounts — through friending and/or actual password requests.

As part of the deal, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is letting the IaaS provider tap into its application programming interfaces (APIs). Eucalyptus says it is now “fully compatible with the Amazon Web Services API, which means you can use or reuse your existing AWS-compatible tools, images (AMIs), and scripts to manage your own hybrid and on-premise clouds.”
