“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,” he clarified the reason. Just like the mechanism of the voting systems in the past, this voting is also triggered if it attracts 7000 or more comments. According to Schrage, users can ask Erin Egan, chief privacy officer of Facebook, questions regarding this issue. The proposed policy changes are on the Facebook Site Governance Page and users have until 9 PM EST on Wednesday November 28 to add comment and attempt to trigger the voting.
With Facebook ending voting system, the users may have to adjust up with the changes that will follow and prepare for the adjustments Facebook might introduce anytime. Democracy to its users would do no harm but the management wouldn’t be easier either when the targeted population combine a figure in billions.
