Facebook claims on policy change vote turnout stir image problem

Christina DesMarais | June 11, 2012
Facebook gave itself an image problem it doesn't need by declaring it's "pretty disappointing" only a small minority of its users voted on its proposed privacy policy changes. The low turnout could have been its intent all along since it didn't do a very good job alerting people to the vote.

While it was interesting that the small activist group was able to force Facebook's hand and make it hold the vote, Facebook went to no great lengths to promote it.

In fact, Europe Vs. Facebook founder Max Schrems said that in its handling of the vote, Facebook "hid the polling center" when it didn't prominently feature it.
