FACEBOOKSouth Africa is tops in Africa in Facebook’s government data request report with just 14 data requests into 9 user accounts followed by Egypt’s 8 requests into 11 users accounts and Ivory Coast’s 4 requests into 4 users accounts.
Uganda made 1 request into 1 user account compared to US’s 12,000 requests for Facebook user data ito 20,000 to 21,000 user accounts.
According to Facebook  Governments make requests to Facebook and many other companies seeking account information in official investigations. The vast majority of these requests relate to criminal cases, such as robberies or kidnappings. In many of these cases, these government requests seek basic subscriber information, such as name and length of service. Other requests may also seek IP address logs or actual account content.
The report contains every request for user data Facebook received for the first six months of 2013 from every government around the world. The giant social network added that it’s its intention to release these reports regularly in the future.

Dubbed the Global Government Requests Report,it details which countries requested information from Facebook about our users, the number of requests received from each of those countries, the number of users/user accounts specified in those requests and the percentage of these requests in which we were required by law to disclose at least some data and it covers the first 6 months of 2013, ending June 30.
