Facebook looking to end users’ privacy voting rights
(CNN) – Facebook’s experiment with democracy may soon come to an end.
The company is considering removing its users’ right to vote on major issues concerning the governance of its 1 billion-member online network.
Facebook lists two primary reasons for ditching digital democracy.
One, the company is huge now. And two, it’s a publicly traded company and now answer to regulatory agencies around the world.
The reaction online has been less than welcoming.
Some technology writers have called for users to revolt.
