A VOTE held by Facebook to determine whether it should change some of its user privacy policies was a bit of a flop.
The voters did not turn out, according to the results, and Facebook can now say that its users aren't bothered about privacy or democracy.
Facebook already told us that it does more for user privacy than most other firms and now it is in a position to shrug its shoulders and ask, "Why do we bother anyway?"
The vote to determine whether Facebook users should have a say had a very low turnout, less than a million of the one billion Facebook user base.
"The Facebook Site Governance vote is now closed," said Facebook. "Thank you for your participation. We will be announcing the results and the next steps regarding the governance process shortly, so check back soon."
"We encourage you to participate and make your voice heard," Facebook said as it introduced the vote on the future of its user data information sharing policies.
"For this vote and any future one, the results will be binding if at least 30 percent of active Facebook users at the time that the vote was announced participate." µ
