Reddit releases first transparency report, reveals only 55 requests for user data


Reddit has received only 55 requests for data on 78 of its users in 2014, according to the link-sharing website’s first-ever transparency report, which was published Thursday.

The report reveals that Reddit, which boasts more than 174 million users, turned over data for only 32 (58%) of those requests. These numbers seems insignificant compared to other tech companies, such as Google or Facebook, which received 32,000 and 35,000 similar requests, respectively, in just the first six months of 2014

As promised, we released our first transparency report today. Please take a look & discuss in the comments
