  • Pakistan Govt Request to Facebook for Restricting Content Rise Sharply

The report covers every information request from across the world over the first half of the year - apart from those subject to national security delays.

In the U.S., the requests rose by 26% from the last six months of 2016 to the first six months of 2017, while globally, requests increased by about 21%.

Facebook's Transparency report 2017: Over 9,690 requests were regarding legal process with the government and they asked for access to 13,490 user accounts.

"We continue to carefully scrutinise each request we receive for account data - whether from an authority in the US, Europe, or elsewhere - to make sure it is legally sufficient". Facebook says majority of the content was in violation of local laws of defamation and content violating religion and hate speech laws. (FB) said that requests for user data from governments worldwide continued to increase.

More than 1,800 requests were so-called "emergency disclosures", which are granted to law enforcement on a case-by-case basis, and are a subject of some controversy.

For the first time, Facebook is monitoring intellectual property reports. Approximately 74 percent of all requests were granted - at least in part - during the first half of 2017, compared to 70 percent in the same period of 2016, according to The New Economy's calculations. For the second half of 2016, content was restricted only around 7000 times, suggesting a fourfold increase in the takedown requests, notes The Verge. So, we scrutinize each request for legal sufficiency, no matter which country is making the request, and challenge those that are deficient or overly broad. We restricted access in Mexico to 20,506 instances of the video in the first half of 2017.

Fake cases against Instagram content rose relentlessly in the primary portion of 2017, with June's grievance number (2,191 reports) higher than the quantity of protestations petitioned for Facebook in April and near different months.

The first half of 2017 witnessed 52 Internet disruptions in nine countries, as opposed to 43 disorders in 20 countries in the second half of 2016.

The informal organization initially presented the reports, which give crude figures on information solicitations and information in truth, in 2013 to help build permeability on government conduct.
