Facebook’s US govt’s requests also include data on Instagram

Washington, Apr 12: The second government requests report by Facebook now reportedly includes data on its photo-sharing app Instagram.

The report includes data on government requests to receive data about Instagram accounts and to restrict access to its content, PC World reports.

The report added that Facebook receives government reports according to country’s laws over online sharing.

If Facebook also determines that the flagged content violates its own standards, it removes the content globally.

The social networking site said that it does not hand over data every time it receives a government request as sometimes the requests are overly broad or vague, or do not comply with legal standards. (ANI)
