The move has caused concern among privacy groups, who say it's "impossible" for 300 million to vote in the time period, and that users are worried that their "voices will no longer be heard".
So far, the vote stands at less than half a million, but is around six to one against the new Statement of Rights and Data Usage Policy.
The wording of the vote itself is not a simple 'Yes' or 'No' -- to vote against, users have to select, `Existing Documents: The current SRR and Data Use Policy,' as opposed to `Proposed Documents: The proposed SRR and Data Use Policy'
The voting page is here.
I admit that I ignored this email when I first got it a couple of days ago, because I couldn't understand WTF they were asking me to vote on. "Do you like the 30 pages of contract-ese on the left, or on the right? Take several hours to study them! No, we don't provide a diff."
And now it's doing this repeatedly: Well played, Facebook. Well played.
