A few years ago, Facebook decided to let users vote on how user privacy and other issues are handle at the social media site. Like so much that’s free on the Web, certain misguided users and tech pundits mistake this benevolence to be an irrevocable “right” that Facebook can never modify or rescind.
Because it is so easy to manipulate Facebook Site Governance votes, the social networking site has decide it is time for a change – reflecting the reality that user feedback is important but shouldn’t be the deciding factor.
To claim a nonexistent “right” to veto the way Facebook’s social media site (or Google+, Linkedin, etc.) is run is absurd. When in Facebook’s social networking ballpark, as a user, you play by the company’s rules…even when those rules change.
