Facebook's privacy changes vote sees little response
After heavy opposition, Facebook decided to hold a vote, allowing the 900 million active users to give their opinion on the changes, which includes how the site uses a person's information. The voting lasted for a week earlier this month, and the result was only binding if 30 percent of users voted. By the end of the week, only .038 percent had voted. Even though the majority of these votes opposed the new settings, the company is still putting the new policy in place, the media outlet reports.
According to PCWorld, Facebook was accused of "hiding" the voting area and many users were unaware a vote was even going on. Officials from the site recently stated they will be revisiting how they promoted the vote to see if they can ensure a better turnout next time.
