You might not have heard this but Facebook is once again thinking about changing its Data Use Policy and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. Fortunately, you (that's ALL of you) can vote on it. So I bet now you're asking why you should even care. Glad you asked.
As this article explains, here's what will change should the new rules be implemented:
- The "Site Governance Process" goes bye-bye. Translation: We don't get to vote anymore.
- Facebook will allow themselves to share to share "information" with affiliates.
- Using Instagram? There's a bunch of stuff changing there but much more than I care to get into
Right now here's where the voting stands:
1 billion active users. So unless 300,000,000 active users vote, this vote will be considered advisory.
What are you waiting for?! Go vote!
