Facebook vote on being able to vote failed....

Postby Apoptosis » Mon Dec 10, 2012 8:35 pm

Did anyone hear about this?

Facebook's flirtation with democracy has come to an end. If it wants to, the social network can now change its policies without user approval.

A weeklong open vote on proposed policy changes, including whether to keep public voting and how data is shared with affiliates such as Instagram, closed Monday. If Facebook goes ahead with its plans, this will be the last such public vote.

Never saw one thing about it.

Think I need to dump all the content I have on FB, and start watching this page from now on https://www.facebook.com/fbsitegovernance
