Facebook: Dutch police and justice demand more data on




Facebook reports that were received in the second half of last year, 76 requests for user information of the Dutch police and judiciary. Thus the number of inquiries has risen again. Facebook also has adapted its community guidelines.

In the period July to December 2014 the Dutch government filed on Facebook 76 requests for 84 users, as appears from data from the social networking site. Facebook claims that in 65 percent of cases is actually provided information. This is the number of requests for increased user data; in the first half of last year were submitted 41 more requests for 45 users. Worldwide, the trend is less sharply; the total number of requests in the first half of 2014 rose only slightly, from 34 946 to 35 501.

Facebook now has its community guidelines adapted . The company says clearly wanting to make what content is and is not allowed. There is inserted a section in the guidelines which “dangerous organizations’ lists. Also about publishing nude photos and videos Facebook aims to give more clarity. This is only permitted by Facebook into a ‘artistic context. In addition, ‘revenge porn’ if not allowed content.

For now Facebook says still have no plans to automatically scan the platform unwanted content. Users must manually report possible violations. It can take up to 48 hours before they are deleted.
