Facebook continues to see increased requests for user data from governments worldwide, according to its latest transparency report.
The social network first introduced the reports, which give raw figures on data requests and data granted, in 2013 to help increase visibility on government behavior. Facebook is limited on what information it can share, but sheer numbers show requests hit 78,890 in the first half of 2017, an increase of 33 percent year-on-year and 23 percent on the previous six-month period.
The U.S., India, UK, Germany and France were the most active in making data requests, accounting for 41 percent, 12 percent, nine percent, seven percent and six percent of the numbers, respectively. Each of those country’s government had more than 50 percent of requests granted, with the U.S. (85 percent), UK (90 percent) and France (74 percent) notable for higher rates.
The amount of data restricted by Facebook to governments also shot up in the first half of 2017 to reach 28,036, up from 6,944 the previous quarter and 9,666 one year prior. However, much of that figure can be traced back to a tragic shooting at a school in Mexico, which resulted in Facebook restricting access to 20,506 pieces of content.
Despite the disclosures there remains plenty that Facebook can’t say, particularly around the nature and intention of data requests from governments. That’s particularly true in the U.S..
“Fifty-seven percent of the data requests we received from law enforcement in the U.S. contained a non-disclosure order that prohibited us from notifying the user, up from 50 percent in our last report,” Facebook Deputy General Counsel Chris Sonderby wrote in a blog post.
Beyond state-related communication, Facebook has also introduced more accountability on IP-related content requests for the first time.
More than 200,000 copyright requests were made related to Facebook content, with 68 percent actioned on and 1.8 million pieces of content “actioned.” Some 70,000 requests for copyright came to Instagram, with 685,000 pieces of content removed.
Over 110,000 pieces of Facebook content were removed for trademark infringement, with over 37,000 removed from Instagram.
The numbers are quite revealing when it comes to claims of counterfeits. Facebook said 217,265 of content on its social network were removed after it acted on 81 percent of 14,279 claims in the first half of the year. On Instagram, it took action against 108,094 posts following 10,231 counterfeit claims.
Counterfeit claims against Instagram content rose steadily in the first half of 2017, with June’s complaint number (2,191 reports) higher than the number of complaints filed for Facebook in April and close to other months. Still, the actual number of content that was taken action against was lower on Instagram than Facebook, but it is a glimpse of the rise of Instagram as a medium of influence and importance even if Facebook remains the larger social network in terms of content.
Ola, the Uber rival in India, is entering the food delivery space after it announced a deal to acquire Foodpanda’s India business from its parent company DeliveryHero.
The deal will see Ola scoop up the Foodpanda India business with DeliveryHero taking an undisclosed amount of Ola stock in exchange.
Undisclosed all-stock deals are usually indicative of a willingness to sell, and we have heard that DeliveryHero has been shopping its Indian business around. Further: Saurabh Kochhar, who headed Foodpanda India, has also “decided to move on to pursue other opportunities,” according to today’s announcement. Ola founding partner will interim CEO until a permanent replacement is found.
Nonetheless, Ola — which is now at around two million rides per day — is an ideal buyer.
The company is in the mood for expansion after it closed a $1.1 billion funding round led by Tencent and SoftBank in October, and seeking ways to differentiate itself from Uber’s Indian business.
To help kickstart that, Ola is pumping $200 million into Foodpanda India, which claims 12,000 restaurant partners in over 100 cities. That investment is more capital than Foodpanda’s (many) competitors in India have raised to date, as Ola went to great pains to point out. But still there’s a great challenge ahead.
DeliveryHero acquired Foodpanda from Rocket Internet at the end of last year, primarily to extend its food-ordering business into Asia, the Middle East and parts of Eastern Europe where Foodpanda is present. Delivery Hero went public this summer at a valuation of $5 billion — giving Rocket Internet an unlikely exit for Foodpanda — which makes this sell-off all the more interesting.
Foodpanda hasn’t taken off in India as quite intended. The company ran into issues with operations — including fake listings and unreliable deliveries — while it laid off 300 staff at the end of 2015.
The company doesn’t disclose country-specific business figures, but order numbers from “Asia” — which includes India and Southeast Asia — grew 47 percent year-on-year in the recent Q3 2017 period to catch up with Europe. Revenue from Asia, however, remains behind at €35.5 million compared to €48.6 million in Europe and €41.8 million in the Middle East.
Without being specific to India, the Delivery Hero deal has generally been seen to inject positive change to Foodpanda’s business as a whole but the company is up against some deep competition.
Swiggy is backed by Naspers and raised near-to $100 million this past year, Zomato scaled to reach profitability and expanded into logistics while international giants Uber (UberEats) and Google (Aero) entered the space with initially limited services.
Foodpanda isn’t Ola’s first move into food. A previous dalliance — pilot project Ola Cafe — shut down in 2016 less than a year after operating in a handful of tier-one cities.
The difference this time, a source close to Ola told TechCrunch, is that Ola is buying a business with scale and not starting one from scratch.
Indeed, we understand that there is no initial plan to bring Foodpanda ordering into the Ola app. That could be a learning from the past — Ola Cafe operated inside the app with no standalone option — but also it is true to say that better engagement comes from a standalone app. There are plans to cross-promote the two services, but Ola isn’t giving details on that right now.
