‘Tis the day after Christmas and I hope all went well on that special day for all my readers and followers…..now we prepare for the next big day…New Year’s.
One thought before I start……..Christmas that magical time for Christians….but did anyone notice that those good Christians in a time of “good will toward men” could not cease their vulgar attacks on any one that does not agree with their perverted mindset? Good Christians everyone.
Enough…time to move on….
I am not a techno geek and I am a blogger and I use Twitter basically for news but many of my friends and readers are on Facebook….I am not one of those….I did not trust the Facebook format at all from the very beginning so I avoided it like a plague….these days our intel group is visiting our social media outlets regularly….at least they could do is leave a positive note……
But I read something about Facebook that is disturbing to me……
Facebook released its latest transparency report today, detailing government requests for user data for the first half of 2016. According to the report, government requests for account data increased by 27 percent globally as compared with the last half of 2015. The number of requests grew from 46,710 to 59,229, Facebook said.
The majority of the requests (56 percent) received from U.S. law enforcement contained a non-disclosure clause that prevented Facebook from notifying the user in question, the company noted.
As with prior transparency reports, Facebook also detailed the number of content restriction requests — that is, the requests from governments in response to postings that violate local laws.
I wonder how many “hacks” were done without the official “request”?
Call me paranoid if you like…but I would sooner kiss a rattlesnake than trust Facebook.
See you guys tomorrow….have a day….chuq
