Facebook Attempts To Save Face, Drafts Constitution
March 2, 2009 at 10:30 am
Turns out the internet isn't a series of tubes at all: it's a nation.
If you check your Facebook right now (if you haven't already), the good ol' folks at everyone's favorite social networking site released the following statement, probably in response to the overwhelmingly negative response to attempted policy changes that tried to steal our souls.
Today we announced new opportunities for users to play a meaningful role in determining the policies governing our site. We released the first proposals subject to these procedures –- The Facebook Principles, a set of values that will guide the development of the service, and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities that governs Facebook’s operations. Users will have the opportunity to review, comment and vote on these documents over the coming weeks and, if they are approved, other future policy changes. We’ve posted the documents in separate groups and invite you to offer comments and suggestions. For more information and links to the two groups, check out the Facebook Blog.
