Facebook released its second Government Requests Report today and it shows that the Indian Government has been making a significant amount of requests for blocking content on the website. The report has data from two separate time period: July to December, 2013 and January to June, 2013. The dataset between July to December, 2013 shows that India made 3958 total requests to Facebook. These requests target 4711 users/accounts. Facebook complied 53.56% of the requests. However, they state that ‘some data’ was produced instead of complete compliance on that published figure. Besides these, Facebook also disclosed that 4765 pieces of content were restricted by law enforcement officials and the India Computer Emergency Response Team due to local laws which do not allow criticism of a religion or state. Facebook General Counsel, Colin Stretch put out a statement, “Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share, and to make the world more open and connected. Sometimes, the laws of a country interfere with that mission, by limiting what can be shared there. When we receive a government request seeking to enforce those laws, we review it with care, and, even where we conclude that it is legally sufficient, we only restrict access to content in the requesting country. We do not remove content from our service entirely unless we determine that it violates our community standards . We take a similar approach to government requests for account information. When we receive a request for information, we carefully assess whether we are legally required to comply. As we have long emphasized, we push back on requests that are overly broad, vague or do not comply with legal standards. When we are required to provide information, in most instances we share basic information only – such as name and IP address.” There seems to be quite a bit of friction between nation states and social networking sites and this can only escalate. Social Media companies like Facebook have massive volumes when it comes to users and data. Due to this, governments are feeling threatened about control that is slipping from their hands when it comes to managing the flow of information. As more Indian users get onto Facebook due to the rise in mobile internet usage, the number of requests will escalate and India, if it continues its current policies, could soon be looked at as a digital rights opponent.

Twitter might be actually struggling when it comes user engagement in terms of actual tweeting. The one time social media phenomenon is currently facing somewhat of a plateau. While it is true that Twitter is the best website to discover real time news, trending topics and other happenings around the globe, it probably might not be seeing the level of engagement that Facebook has with its users. Twitter has been making multiple attempts to design the service for maximum engagement and get more users to sign up and actively use the service, especially after their much talked about IPO. To that end, they have developed a new profile page which kinda resembles Facebook.  It would be more helpful for new users in emerging countries to sign up to an experience that they are already familiar with. However, according to TwopCharts , a website which tracks Twitter usage data, has said that about 44% of 974 million existing accounts on Twitter have not yet sent a single tweet. Twitter has disclosed that it has approximately 241 million monthly active users. Monthly active users in Twitter parlance means a user has to sign in at least once a month into their Twitter account to contribute to this statistic. So, Twitter does not place emphasis on users actually tweeting, as long as they are signing into their accounts. However, this in my opinion, may be a wrong metric to map usage. Twitter is all about user and brand related content, and the more people tweet, the more useful it gets. While, there might be a case where there is too much content on the site, one should not forget that tweets are the driving engine behind the machine. On the other hand, one can argue that Twitter might be also the perfect consumption medium for people who just don’t have the time to contribute to it. There are definitely people out there who consume their Twitter feeds voraciously but are not very keen on tweeting. Now, if this is the case it could be assumed that these users don’t reply and retweet in significant amounts. Twitter’s entire product strategy is powered by engagement including ads, trending topics, personalization etc. However, if many users just consume and don’t create, as is suggested in TwopCharts’ report, then there might be a problem. All this make me wonder if Twitter is as relevant and revolutionary as it once was. While I find it an excellent place to find news and real time events, that is pretty much it. I wonder how many users feel the same way. Source | WSJ Looking For A Social Media Agency?? – Contact WATConsult – India’s Leading Social Media Agency
