After an extended comment period and a few revisions, Facebook is ready to adopt a new "Statement of Rights and Responsibilities" and data use policy. The public comment period is over for the changes, but Facebook has decided to put it to a vote of its users. Any Facebook member can use the company's custom "Site Governance Vote" app to choose whether they'd prefer the new policies or the old. Facebook has provided a rundown of the changes to the SRR and the data use policy for your weekend perusal.
If you don't vote, well, there's the possibility you won't get another chance next time around — Facebook is hinting that its governance model is likely to change: "While our participatory mechanisms may change, our commitment to greater transparency, accountability and responsiveness will not." The (virtual) polls will be open until 9:00AM PDT on June 9th, if you'd like to take part.
