Through official reports and records, Over a year and a half, We have documented how companies owning social networks conspire with the governments of the world and how they receive confidential user data.
Telecommunications companies and social media enable governments to obtain user data, restrict and delete their content, through formal requests, in contravention of Article 17 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and violate their privacy policies.
What makes this project innovative?
We've been able to get corporate transparency reports, cleaned and analyzed through a variety of programs, such as Excel and Google Sheets. We've compiled all international treaties and documents to get to the reality of the social networking Conspiracy with governments to reveal user data.
What was the impact of your project? How did you measure it?
Expose the international conspiracy to users of social networks, expand user awareness, and develop more stringent privacy policies and transparency.
