Facebook ups the ante by urging U.S. government to be more transparent

Facebook ups the ante by urging U.S. government to be more transparent

Earlier this week, the world was dumbfounded upon hearing about a top secret surveillance program allegedly called PRISM that is said to monitor servers belonging to top technology companies including Google and Facebook.

Mark Zuckerberg was quick to respond saying that "Facebook is not and has never been part of any program to give the U.S. or any other government direct access to our servers." Mr. Zuckerberg also denied receiving requests from the U.S. government, adding that he never heard of PRISM before.

Today, Facebook General Counsel, Ted Ullyot, released a statement saying that the company is holding discussions with U.S. national security authorities to urge them to be more transparent and flexible about national security-related orders. The said discussions turned out to be a good move.

Ullyot said that Facebook can now include a transparency report of all  security-related requests including FISA and other national security letters. Ullyot adds that in a span of six months last year, the overall number of user-data requests ranged between 9,000 to 10,000.
