Pinterest unveils first transparency report
Washington: Pinterest has reportedly revealed its first ever transparency report, giving out information on the number of requests the company received in the past six months from state and federal government agencies.
According to the report unveiled by the company, Pinterest received only 12 information requests in the second half of 2013.
The report confirmed that unlike other social networks like Facebook and Twitter, the government doesn't often turn to Pinterest to gather user information, the Mashable reported.
Adam Barton, a project manager at Pinterest, said that every company that stores information from banks to phone companies to email providers must respond to requests for that information from folks like law enforcement agencies , courts, and others.
