Facebook Will Implement Changes And Eliminate Policy Voting But Explore Alternative Governance

Facebook just announced the official, audited results of its final site governance vote. Though it will remove voting from its governance structure, it plans to “implement new, innovative and effective ways to enhance this process.” Well under 1 percent of users voted, and the final tally was 589,141 people opposed to the changes, and 79,731 in favor.”While participation in the vote was minimal, this experience illustrated the clear value of our notice and comment process,” Facebook said. “Your substantive feedback on our proposals during the seven-day comment period, along with discussions with our global regulators, resulted in clarifications and revisions to those proposals.” Here Facebook is trying to stress that it was able to gather feedback without the vote, and will be able to do so in the future.
