Facebook Wins Privacy Vote


The Facebook Site Governance vote is now closed and it proved that Facebook's users remain pathetic as they relinquished the right to vote on the social network's provacy changes.

Although nearly 9 in 10 of those who voted were against the changes proposed by Facebook, a very small percentage of the social network's 1 billion users actually voted, meaning that users's votes do not count, as the elections did not meet Facebook 's participation threshold. In order for the vote to be binding though, 30% of the site's over one billion users had to participate.

Among the proposed changes, Facebook's users will not have the right to vote on future changes. In addition, Facebook will be able to loosen restrictions on who can message you on Facebook and whether it can share information with its affiliates, including popular photo-sharing service Instagram.

Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, called the vote "notable" and "historic" because it was roughly twice the size of the vote held in June and called on Facebook to heed the will of those Facebook users who did vote.

The next step will be a review of the Facebook vote by an outside auditor.
