    "Pop quiz: What do Facebook and the FBI have in common? They’re both keeping files on you – only Facebook’s is probably a lot more extensive.

    No, this is not paranoia. Thanks to European privacy laws, Facebook friends across the pond can request their complete Facebook logs -- the same files Facebook would send to law enforcement agencies pursuant to a court order."


    Sorry U.S citizens, you're not allowed access to these.

    If one could effective fake being a law enforcement agency and send a few requests, the compare that to what they release to an individual, it would show just what they are withholding. I'd bet that there's a bigger agency closer to home that's telling them not to comply.
