Face it

Law enforcement agencies in the UK have apparently made over 1,900 requests for data on Facebook users from July – December of 2013. 2,277 accounts were affected by the requests.

Facebook’s general counsel, Colin Stretch, said

“Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share. When we receive a request for information, we carefully access whether we are legally required to comply."

Our specialist lawyers might add that this refers to 'legal' requests for info. What about the "dark arts" that might be used to monitor an individual for surveillance or "soft intel" purposes? The CIA, FBI, Secret Services utilising GCHQ?
