Facebook’s forth and back

The most discussed topic of the past few weeks on the Web was, of course, Facebook’s new Terms of Use.  Actually, there were nothing special in these terms except one little point that Facebook owns shares users’ uploaded info. Also, this info isn’t deleted even after deleting user’s profile. Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg tried to calm down users by telling they always own and control their content and ask them to trust Facebook (read the post). Still, as “trust” is not a legal term, thousands of users and Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) have demanded Facebook to return to the previous terms of use.  This Tuesday, Facebook has returned to the previous terms, but not for a long time, as Mark Zuckerberg said (read the post). They’ll develop new terms to satisfy both Facebook and its 175 million users. So, everyone’s invited to join Facebook Bill of Rights and Responsibilities group to discuss the next version of the Terms.

Facebook Bill of Rights and Responsibilities

I can hardly imagine how such a numerous and diverse group of people as Facebook users are can come to a single opinion. Still, the idea to ask for users’ feedback is great and I with Facebook good luck in developing the new Terms. Join and take part!
