The Facebook governance vote concluded yesterday. The social network says that while the numbers need to be verified by an independent auditor, 74% are in favor of the new documents over the old Terms of Service. 600,000 members participated in the vote.
The new documents include "Facebook Principles," which define the rights of members, and a "Statement of Rights and Responsibilities," which replaces the old Terms of Service.
Once the vote is confirmed, the new policies will take effect. Any future changes to the documents will be subject to public notice, comment and voting.
