Facebook Updates Transparency Report With Content Removal Requests
The latest edition expands beyond just offering a glimpse at the number of government requests for account information. Now the report will also include data about requests asking Facebook to restrict or remove content altogether on the basis that it violates local laws.
Last summer, the Menlo Park, Calif.-based company started publishing transparency reports about data requests made by government and law enforcement agencies in the wake of the National Security Agency leak in June 2013.
To recall, Facebook was revealed to be one of the nine tech giants used as a pipeline for the NSA’s secret data mining program, PRISM, which sparked a global controversy.
