Facebook plans to end practice allowing users to vote on privacy policy changes

Washington -Social networking giant Facebook is reportedly planning to end its practice of allowing users vote on changes to its privacy policies.

 The site will, however, continue to let users comment on proposed updates.

 According to CBS News, Facebook said in a blog post 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.

 Facebook said it will continue to inform users of 'significant changes' to its privacy policy, called its data use policy, and to its statement of user rights and responsibilities.

 According to the report, the firm said it will keep its seven-day comment period and take users' feedback into consideration.

 "We will also provide additional notification mechanisms, including email, for informing you of those changes," wrote Elliot Schrage, Facebook's vice president of communications, public policy and marketing, in the post.
