Facebook Plans to End Voting on Privacy Issues

Facebook reaches 1 billion users markSocial networking giant Facebook is likely to close its practice of allowing users to vote on the changes that it makes to privacy policies. However, it might continue letting users comment on the proposed updates.

This was announced by Facebook on their blog, which said that post Wednesday the voting mechanism at the social network could come to an end. With this mechanism, the suggested change occurs only if enough people comment on it and therefore, it has become a system that emphasizes on the number of responses rather than the quality of comments.

However, Facebook also said it will still continue with providing users with information related to “significant changes” made to its privacy policy or data use policy. They will also inform users of changes to its statement of user rights and responsibilities.

“We will also provide additional notification mechanisms, including email, for informing you of those changes,” Facebook vice president of communications, public policy and marketing Elliot Schrage said in the post.
