TechCrunch: Government requests for Facebook user account data up 9% in second half of 2016, but content restrictions declined

TechCrunch: Government requests for Facebook user account data up 9% in second half of 2016, but content restrictions declined . “Facebook today released its latest report on global government requests for the second half of 2016, noting there has been a 9 percent increase in requests for user account data compared with the earlier part of that year, but a 28 percent decrease in content restrictions for violating local law. However, that latter decrease doesn’t necessarily indicate that content restriction-related requests are dropping as a trend, but rather that earlier reporting had been impacted by unusually inflated figures.”
