Facebook : Government Requests For User Data Rises 24% Post Posted: Wed Nov 05, 2014 1:03 pm 

The social network Facebook said that the governments requests for user information rose by about a quarter in the first half of 2014 over the second half of last year.

In the first six months of year 2014 , governments around the world made 34,946 requests for data. At the same time the amount of content restricted because of local laws increased about 19 percent.

On Tuesday, in a company blog Facebook said, "We are aggressively pursuing an appeal to a higher court to invalidate these sweeping warrants and to force the government to return the data it has seized."

In the month of September Google reported that a 15 percent sequential increase in the number of requests in the first half of this year, and a 150 percent rise in the last five years, from governments around the world to reveal user information in criminal investigations.
