Few days back, I posted about vote on Facebook’s Governing Document.
Just few minutes back, I tried checking Facebook’s official blog as I was expecting result today when I noticed blog was down.
Thankfully, rest of the Facebook is up and running.
Following quote from David at Los Angeles Time suggests some bad news for privacy-savvy Facebook users who voted for new policy document…
By the time voting closed today at noon Pacific time, only 0.32% of Facebook’s users had weighed in on the question of whether the site’s lengthy new policy documents were better than the lengthy old ones.
About 75% of that 0.32% chose the newer policy, while the rest chose the old. But the election won’t count anyway: Facebook said that for the results to be valid, 30% of its roughly 200 million users would have to weigh in. That’s about 100 times more than the 0.32% of people who actually did.
