Users Give Facebook’s Privacy Changes a Thumbs Down

Did you participate on this poll from Facebook on their privacy changes? If you did, check this article from PCWorld.com and see if you voted right.

Voting on Facebook’s proposed changes to its privacy policy concluded Friday morning Pacific time, with voters delivering a strong rebuke of the proposed changes but falling far short of the turnout the company required to consider the vote binding.

Just 13 percent of voters supported Facebook’s proposed policy changes. However, the voter turnout of 342,600 came to just 0.1 percent of the number Facebook required to make the vote binding.

Facebook said it would accept the vote as binding if 30 percent of its 901 million active users voted. The required worldwide turnout of more than 270 million users would have required a voting bloc equal to roughly 86 percent of the United States population as estimated by the U.S. Census.

The company said it would consider the vote advisory if participation fell short of the required number.

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
