    Posted by on 24 Sep 2013
    Social media is now, more than ever, an integral part of communicating on a daily basis. However, just like other forms of communication, what is said on social media, even in private conversations, is not free from legal jurisdiction. Like phone records, emails and text messages, orders can be made to provide information on Facebook accounts to the Courts. The governments of many countries make requests to Facebook to access account information of certain users that relate to criminal cases. Facebook has decided to launch a report on information they have been required to provide so that all users are aware.
