Huh.  What was fakeBook's response?

Being as they don't tell you what percentage they handover, I am going to say 99.89% are approved. I have yet to hear of facebook taking the government to court over protecting user data. (Cue the uproarious laughter at such a thought concerning the king's of personal data collection and distribution...)

From their reports...
"As we’ve shared in previous reports, we carefully scrutinize every government request we receive to protect the information of the people who use our services. Each request must be legally sufficient and if a request appears to be defective or overly broad, we push back and will fight in court, if necessary."

I'm willing to risk them suing me for liable by saying "bullshit."  8)
