Facebook To Let Users Play “Meaningful Role” In Site Policies

27 Feb

founder Mark Zuckerberg sought to reassure users that they own their information, not Facebook. And in a broader step, the company also said its users will get a hand in determining the various policies _ such as privacy, ownership and sharing _ by reviewing, commenting and voting on them before they are put in place.

If more than 7,000 users comment on any proposed change, it would go to a vote. It would be binding to Facebook if more than 30 percent of active users vote. Based on Facebook’s current size, that would be nearly 53 million people. By comparison, a group created to protest Facebook’s new terms has roughly 139,600 members as of Thursday.
