Facebook letting users vote on privacy policy

Posted: Updated:


Facebook is letting its nearly 1 billion users vote on changes to its privacy policy that will start today.
This is the second time Facebook is letting users vote on policy changes. The first time was in 2009 when Facebook only had about 200 million users.
The company announced updates in May that include new sections that explain how Facebook uses people's information. The changes open up the possibility for Facebook to show people ads on outside websites, targeting the pitches to interests and hobbies that users express on Facebook.
Facebook said in a blog post Friday that it is reviewing the voting process, signaling that it might be time to end it.
