Remember months back when Facebook caused an uproar by changing its terms of service agreement to allow the social network to keep user information after it was deleted and license it to third parties?
Facebook members and privacy hawks cried foul; the original terms of service was restored and Facebook returned to the drawing board. It has since created two terms of service: the one it drafted in September 2008 without member input and a new one that incorporates feedback from users.
Basically, the status quo versus a change you called for. So now Facebook is asking members to cast their vote on which terms of service they prefer.
You have until 11:59 this evening to cast your vote.
Now here’s the problem. Facebook said at least 30 percent of active users in the past month must participate to make the vote count—that’s between 60 and 70 million people. About 24 hours ago a mere 300,000 had voted, reports The Consumerist blog.
So, Facebook members, what are you waiting for?
