government requests for FB personal data of users up 24%

Yes, the government has decided social media is a great way to get your personal info for its uses. FB protests. FB reports a 24% increase (almost 35,000) of requests from governments for personal data on user compared to the  prior 6 months. This may include photos, private messages, and other info.  FB is fighting and appealing.  Interesting-Google reports a 15% increase in government requests for users' personal info Jan.-June 2014 compared to the prior and a 150% increase in the last five years. I I hope you all are keeping it clean and legal on your FB or Google posts. Read more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29910101
