India, the UK, Germany and France were also among the most frequent requesters, with 12 per cent, nine per cent, seven per cent and six per cent, respectively. Facebook removed 20,506 instances of this video.
In the case of 262 Facebook accounts flagged in the "Emergency" category from user/account requests, the company produced "some data" in 36% of the cases.
Facebook's annual transparency report for 2017 is now out and the Indian government's request for data were up significantly.
The ninth Facebook transparency report also showed that government requests for information about users increased 21 percent worldwide compared with the second half of 2016, from 64,279 to 78,890.
More than half of the requests were granted, above all in the United Kingdom (90%), USA (85%) and France (74%), said Facebook.
Facebook also received preservation requests, which ask that certain account records be saved, especially for matters of official criminal investigations for 90 days pending the receipt of the formal legal process.
57% of the data requests were from United States law enforcement contained a non-disclosure order that prohibited us from notifying the user, a rise of 50% from the previous transparency report.
Compared to the first half of 2016, where the number of requests stood at 6,324, this is almost a 55 per cent jump for 2017. If a request appears to be deficient or overly broad, we push back, and will fight in court, if necessary. We continue to be deeply concerned by internet disruptions, which can create barriers for businesses and prevent people from sharing and communicating with their family and friends. For instance, in order for U.S. law enforcement to compel the disclosure of messages, photos and location information, they must provide a valid search warrant and have "probable cause". Copies of five NSLs are also available in the transparency report. Around 70,000 requests were sent to Instagram, and 685,000 pieces of content were removed.
