    from the article:

    Facebook and Microsoft were able to reveal limited information on Friday night about the government orders they have received to turn over user data to security agencies.
    Ted Ullyot, Facebook's general counsel, said in a statement that they had between 9,000 and 10,000 requests from all government entities, from local to federal, in the last six months of 2012.
    The orders involved the accounts of between 18,000 and 19,000 Facebook users on a broad range of surveillance topics, from missing children to terrorism.

    Of course most Facebook users will be secretly thrilled that someone is finally interested in their boring-@ss lives.

    I'm not sure that Facebook is the place I'd go for privacy in the first place

    Well if you google certain subjects, I've actually seen THIS BOARD as one of the top 4-5 references.

    I'm scared for humanity, seriously. :laugh:

    This is the only place I really feel safe. I even feel a bit violated when I go over on pub.
