Visualizing the countries that request the most information from Facebook
Today, Facebook released a report of the requests for data by governments around the world. The report is a simple table, but I think a visualization tells the story much better. Basically, the United States makes way, way more requests than any other country. In fact 53% of the total requests came from the United States. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised given the PRISM surveillance program.
