Gee, it sure would've been nice if they'd fucking informed people about this. I dunno, send out emails to the users or something? It's all kinds of sketchy to me that they didn't do so.

Uh, yeah. This.

Guess why they didnt- so that no user knows and they can happily go implementing any shit.
12th-Jun-2012 11:11 am (UTC)
indeed. and it would not be any big problem, they email you about everything, like that a "friend" has soon birthday.

I picked other since I have no clue what you are talking about. Considering I'm on facebook pretty much every day, I'm not sure how they were communicating this to people?

the same here.

Voting? On Facebook? What?

I'm thinking that the point is that they WEREN'T communicating this to people. I didn't know about it either, though I only log on about once a day now.

Exactly, and it's just like them not to tell people about this. And then say 'well, we won't consider the results because not enough users voted'. Not the first time this has happened.

I've been following http://facebookprivacyandsecurity.wordpress.com/ for a while now. There's been at least a couple of months there have been posts about issues related to this vote. I didn't vote because I knew that there wouldn't be enough people voting for it to make a difference. I did link to relevant posts so friends could be aware of what was going on.

Thanks for recommending this blog.

Thanks for link. That comment nicely sums up everything.

The vote was pretty much a choice between 'shit' and 'more shit', with 'more shit' as default. And even though there would be enough people voting against 'more shit', I guess they would just try again sometime later.

Other: No, because i quit Facebook before it was cool. =)

But honestly, i left Facebook because i was just tired of their privacy policies. It sounds like they're up to their usual tricks, hmmm?

..additionally, this is an excellent way to figure out who is concerned about the privacy policies.
