Facebook changes privacy policies, scraps user voting

The voting period for the proposed changes to Facebooks Statement of Rights and Responsibilities and Data Use Policy has ended on Monday, and despite the email sent out to the users asking them to review the changes and cast their vote, less than one percent of all users have done so.

“An external auditor has reviewed and confirmed the final results. Of the 668,872 people who voted, 589,141 recommended we keep our existing SRR and Data Use Policy,” stated Elliot Schrage, Facebook’s vice president of communications, public policy, and marketing.

Still, that is not nearly enough to prevent the proposed changes – as required by Facebook, at least 30 percent of the users should have voted against them in order to keep the previous versions of the policies.
