Facebook Releases New Terms of Service for Feedback; Allows Users to Vote on Changes

by , Comments

After enduring controversy over a new Terms of Service, Facebook has released another new version - this time with a whole new vision for its implementation. The new TOS is open for feedback, in the spirit of being transparent.

There are two documents being released. One is "Facebook Principles," which defines the rights of members. The second is a "Statement of Rights and Responsibilities," which replaces the Terms of Service. Facebook also says their users will be notified of and get to vote on changes made to the documents.

When testing occurs on the social network, it will not be subject to notification or voting.

With today's announcement, Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg assured users that his social network doesn't own data, the users do.
