Facebook is proposing to end its practice of letting users vote on changes to its privacy policies, though it will continue to let users comment on proposed updates.
The world`s biggest social media company said in a blog post on Wednesday that its voting mechanism, which is triggered only if enough people comment on proposed changes, has become a system that emphasizes quantity of responses over quality of discussion. Users tend to leave one or two-word comments objecting to changes instead of more in-depth responses.
"We will also provide additional notification mechanisms, including email, for informing you of those changes," wrote Mr Elliot Schrage, Facebook`s vice president of communications, public policy and marketing, in the post.
