So wait a second? What was that poll even about then? Why did you ask for our opinion and did Facebook even do enough to make people want to vote in it or even know about it? If only around 342,632 people voted did the other 899,657,368 people even know about this poll? Does Facebook even care about the 899,657,368 other people who didn’t vote, or even about the results?
“Given these efforts and the subsequent turnout, we plan to review this process to determine how to maximize our ability to promote user engagement and participation in our site governance process in the future,” Elliot Schrage, vice president of communications, public policy, and marketing at Facebook said. “Since transparent governance and user participation are critical values for us, I’d like to thank everyone who participated in this process by voting and providing feedback on the proposed changes. We value the feedback we have received from you during the voting process and our notice and comment period. We will take it into serious consideration for any future changes we contemplate to these two documents and as we continue to develop our service.”
If you say you value the feedback, why are you displaying that you’re changing it? Seems a bit like an odd thing to do Facebook.
