Zuck promised more details on how much of your online life Facebook hands over to the government, and he's starting to deliver. Bonus: we're not just getting The Government, but dozens of governments around the world. Guess who Facebook is working with the most?
Of course, it's the Stars and Stripes: between "the first 6 months of 2013, ending June 30," the U.S. government asked Facebook for the accounts somewhere between "20,000 - 21,000" users. These requests pertained to "both criminal and national security" matters. Facebook cooperated with 79% of these—the highest disclosure rate in the world other than Iceland and Hong Kong (which only requested one user apiece) and Albania. The sheer number of accounts the U.S. requested dwarfs the entire rest of the planet.
