Facebook recognizes that governments require ever more frequently to block content

Facebook

At this point of the film no-one should stretch out the hair. Every time we use a service from either Google, Twitter or Facebook, we lose a part of our intimacy. Is the price to pay for being in the network –in addition to using free services, and is in the middle of S. XXI, if you’re not on the network you are nobody.

We are aware that when we believe an account of what it is, we give all our personal data to a third company, which in a greater or lesser extent and always within certain limits, you can do whatever you want with them. That watch over us, it’s obvious. Every time we connect to the Internet, or publish something in the network we leave a mark, it is obvious. That governments take advantage of this, it is also obvious.

funny Thing is the increase of the demands of governments around the world for control of the network, of the Internet and its users. Own Facebook has recognized that in a post written on his blog, and the data that it exposes, and that includes The Wall Street Journal are the less curious.

In the first half of 2015, a total of 92 countries have called for both the social network of Zuckerbeg —do you want to meet the founders of technology companies to fashion?— like other services such as WhatsApp, Messenger, or Instagram to block the amount of 20.568 publications by violating its laws. Facebook, during the first half of last year, received 8.774 applications from 83 countries.

it Is therefore Facebook who more “requests” for blocking receives on the part of governments around the world, in total, 42.4%. The united states conducted an 17.577 applications, but not all of them to block content. Between all those thousands of requests, also required data from a total of 26.579 users, all in the first half of this year. Obtained data provided by Facebook of the 80% of the requests.

Facebook started to deliver our information about two years ago, pressured by the american authorities. But not only Facebook, large companies like Apple or Microsoft neither are saved and show similar to the data of the social network. Despite everything, Facebook defends itself by reiterating that it does not give direct access to the data of its users and that if the application is very wide, and they rejected it.

But the united States is not the country that most requires, if not India. During the first half of the year was 15.155 requests to block content from Facebook –then we complain about lack of freedom of expression, the triple of those made last year. Other countries such as Turkey increased by 58% their applications during this year 2015, and even France, from 22 to 295.

The issue is that we are more guarded than it seems, and although the companies try to safeguard the right of privacy of its users, it is often difficult to endure the pressures of the governments. So remember, the idea is not to stop enjoying the content in the network, if you do not do this with head on, and responsibility. No one will be interested in our data if we publish and share is based on common sense and respect. That’s it.
