Facebook Users to Vote on Privacy Policy

Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) - Usually, the way it works is this: Facebook makes changes to the site's privacy policy - and users complain about them.

But now, the social networking site is giving its nearly 1 billion users the chance to vote on those changes. Among the changes that will go up for vote: new sections explaining how it uses people's information.

The updates also reflect recently added features such as a new profile format called Timeline.

The voting started this past Friday - and runs through next week.
