Government requests for Facebook data continue to grow

Loek Essers | March 17, 2015
Requests from governments for people's Facebook account data were overall on the rise in the second half of 2014, though they declined in the U.S. and Germany.

The network will only block content in a country after careful legal review. It will, for example, restrict content denying the Holocaust in Germany as its denial is illegal in that country, it said.

It is the fourth time Facebook provided details on government data requests and content restrictions.

The company vowed to keep scrutinizing every request and said it will push back in case of any deficiencies.
