Facebook to put privacy changes to vote thanks to policy group, its own rules
Posted by max at June 2nd, 2012
A vote on Facebook privacy rules prompted by 45,000 comments plastered on its governance page is likely to trigger consequences — maybe some not intended. With Max Schrems’ Our Policy site easily egging the number past the 7,000 threshold, the now-public social company must wait to see if 30 percent of its user base will object to the seemingly modest revisions. With the flock now numbering nearly 800 million, it seems unlikely that 230 million of them will bother to even vote, let alone strike the changes down. Given that and Facebook’s privacy Czar Erin Egan saying that it will now revisit the vote policy, it’s possible the only result will be a change in terms which could stymie future privacy efforts.
