and nobody cared


FaceBook users have had the ability to vote on how the site is run since 2009.


Users could shape their own privacy rules for awhile but less than 1/3rd of 1% ever voted. With a chance to hold on to the ownership of their own photos and content, Facebook users punted bigtime.


So yesterday FaceBook went back to being a dictatorship again removing the vote feature, using your content however they see fit and now you’ll have to allow it.


Zuckerberg is betting you won’t leave. 

From computerworld.com :
“It only took 7,000 users to force a vote on a Facebook privacy issue. With more than 1 billion worldwide users, that is one thousandth of 1% of total users.”
"If the same principle was applied to the United States, it would mean that 2,100 hotheads could force a nationwide vote on whatever issue has them all hot and bothered," he said.
