Facebook is going backward on social by proposing an end to its voting system that allows users to share their feedback and weigh in on decisions regarding privacy on the site.
This is what Facebook have to say:
We deeply value the feedback we receive from you during our comment period. In the past, your substantive feedback has led to changes to the proposals we made. However, we found that the voting mechanism, which is triggered by a specific number of comments, actually resulted in a system that incentivized the quantity of comments over their quality. Therefore, we’re proposing to end the voting component of the process in favor of a system that leads to more meaningful feedback and engagement.
