Facebook Releases Second Global Government Requests Report, Adds Requests To Restrict, Remove Content
Facebook announced the release of the second edition of its Global Government Requests Report, and this time around, it added government requests to restrict or remove content to the information it previously provided on government requests for account information.
Facebook is targeting businesses in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa that have not yet advertised on the social network with ads directing them to the Facebook Start to Success Program, which offers free support for first-time advertisers, as well as a £25 ($39.15) credit toward advertising.
Facebook is continuing to grow, shooting past 1 billion users, but where are these people coming from? A new report from social statistics firm Socialbakers shows that many of them are coming from the Middle East and North Africa region, which accounts for an average of 21 new registrations per minute.
