Facebook Backpeddles, Gives Control to the Users

Facebook has today announced that they will allow the users a bigger say in the running of the website. This is amidst complaints about how user data is controlled by Facebook.
Mark Zuckerberg has said that he hopes to ‘open up’ Facebook so that the users can control how the site is run and how the data that they enter into the site is controlled. Users will be given better comment and voting rights on the creation of future policies that Facebook puts in place. The reaction to this has been mostly a shocked one as this level of transparency into a social networking company has not been done before.
