Facebook: Over 1886 requests for data of German government in first half of 2013




Facebook and Co. are the latest since the scandal PRISM much stronger in the criticism and the focus of data protection. Almost every day there is news now about which networks with which governments work together and where they get their data. Facebook now published its own report Global Government requests the specification of the number of data requests per country known. Little surprising is Germany with over 1,886 individual data requests to 2,086 accounts with the very front at the top, only the governments of India, the U.S. and Britain provided more questions than the German authorities.

It is interesting that only 37 percent of the inquiries Facebook was legally obligated to release a portion of the data in the U.S., this figure is just under 80 percent in the UK and also in rich 68 percent. The ratio between the number of requests to the actually data passed in this country is so still in the frame, at least in direct comparison with other powerful states.

The complete and incidentally first such report contains data from 01 January to 30 June 2013 all governments worldwide. Facebook wants to provide more transparency to their own users.
