Facebook Wants You to Vote on Whether or Not You're Allowed to Vote

 

The election is over, political ads are removed from television, and we can all rest easy for four more years. WRONG. It’s time to vote again, in the Facebook Site Governance proposed documents. Voting started 2 days ago, but fear not, you can vote up until December 10th at 12pm (PST). You can vote here.

Here is what Facebook had to say about the vote:
Recently, Facebook posted proposed revisions to its Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (SRR) and Data Use Policy and invited users to provide comments on these new documents. Now, please vote to let Facebook know which documents you prefer to govern the site.

Don’t worry, you’ll be able to read up on the proposed changes when you vote. It’s a bit long, so here’s a shortened version thanks to Mashable.

 

 

 

Here is what you’re voting for:

  • To get rid of user voting on its governance changes; instead, the company will allow members to provide feedback by submitting questions to Erin Egan, Facebook's chief privacy officer, as well as hosting webcasts to address comments and inquiries.

  • Share user data with its affiliates, including Instagram, which the company acquired in April.

  • Set "new filters" for managing incoming messages to users' inboxes.

  • Change how they "refer" to certain products.

  • Clarify exactly who can see what on user timelines.

Why vote:
You’re basically voting on whether or not Facebook is going to have these open votes again as well. So far 176,728 have voted to not change the proposed documents. At least 30% of all active registered users must vote in order for the results to be "binding," according to Facebook. Any less than that, and the vote will only be "advisory" -- meaning the social network can go ahead with its proposal. Mashable stated that in a previous vote that took place only 342,632 users cast their ballots -- that was 0.038% of Facebook's then-population. If you want your voice to be heard, vote. If not, that’s okay too.
