The Facebook Government Requests Report…

An interesting report has been published by Facebook showing which countries have requested Data or blocked content.

In case of the UAE this is not really a high number. 2 Total requests for data, 2 User Account requests and 12 content restrictions. Compared to Germany who has 1687 cases of Data requests, 1950 User Account requests and 84pieces of content blocked.

facebookuaeThe US is here quite far upfront with 12598 total data requests, 18715 user requests but no content block. Interesting as well is to see that there is additional National Security requests in the US not only Law Enforcement.

Looking on Russia i was really wondering, 1 total request for Data only and 1 user account request together with 4 content blocks….
