After the proposal has been made, two Facebook groups have now asked the social media giant to put a halt to its proposed amendments accusing that he changes make user data vulnerable.
In a letter to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, President of the Center for Digital Democracy Jeffrey Chester and the President of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, Marc Rotenberg stated saying “These newly proposed amendments will increase privacy risks for the users. We request the Facebook authorities to pull out the proposed amendments.” The user-voting system was launched by Facebook in 2009.
The news of privacy changes have raised a lot eyebrows and created concern among people. The European Union regulators asked for clarification regarding these recent changes. If implemented, these changes will be enacted in the social network’s data policy statement.
From Facebook’s point of view, the voting system was ineffective for more comments but less quality.
