Facebook Users Vote on Policy Changes


Facebook is getting out the vote on its proposed changes to both 'Data Use Policy' and 'Statement of Rights and Responsibilities' documents.

The initial proposed changes included how Facebook handles your data, and a plan to abolish the social network's practice of allowing users to vote on policy changes in the first place.

Voting starts Monday and lasts seven days. It will be facilitated by an application developed on Facebook Platform by a third-party service provider. Facebook said an independent auditor would examine the vote tabulation to further ensure accurate results.

Unless 30% of Facebook's 1 users cast their ballots, users will lose their right to vote.

In a blog post, Elliot Schrage, Facebook's vice president of communications, public policy and marketing, encouraged Facebook users to exercise their right to vote.

"We've heard from many of you through our comment process. We are grateful that you took the time to share your thoughts," Schrage wrote. "This feedback allows us to respond to your questions and make substantive changes to our proposals before they are implemented."

Facebook users can also let Facebook know what they think of other proposals such as sharing user data with its subsidiary Instagram and loosening restrictions on who can message you on Facebook.

The proposals have changed after Facebook got feedback from regulators, Elliot Schrage said.
