Facebook has made it official: Its users will no longer get a vote in how the giant social network handles their personal information. And the votes that they did cast over the past week rejecting Facebook's proposed changes to privacy policies will not count.

Facebook said Tuesday it has already adopted the policy changes. An external auditor reviewed and confirmed the final results, Facebook said. Nearly 669,000 Facebook users voted, most of them opposed to the policy changes, including taking away their right to vote on policy changes.

    This is not the reason G+ will get more users in the long run. It sucks, but it won't drive people away from Facebook.

    I wish Facebook would die. It is nothing but a data mining operation for the NSA.

    Eventually. The Facebook is reaching its expiration date, just like the MySpace did, just like G+ will.

    Facebook has gotten too big and, like anything else, with quantity you lose quality. The fact that it doesn't care what its members think about how their private information is being used is just another nail in their coffin.

    People en masse tend to stick to Facebook because "all their friends" are on it and they don't want to learn a new interface. Google+ is better by far however it will likely not have more members than Facebook.

    Google forcing everyone to use G+ will, though.

    Which is just stupid. "Anonymous" trolls will still be trolls even if you put their name out, unless someone goes and kills them. See?: http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/...

    Voting rights? WE HAD THOSE?

    I just try not to discuss sensitive information and hope it'll never be illegal to have openly questioned the government in the past.

    Edit: And may I remind you that deleting your Facebook account is pointless. It'll just make it so that YOU can no longer access your information. Zuckerberg and friends still can.

    your fiends can't access your account after you delete it. After two weeks the account gets taken off the website.

    I personally use g+ and really enjoy it. It's a nice break from facebook and (at least for me) has more substance as far as the content there, people that I have "met" and posts that are made. Having said that, I don't think it will "drive" anyone to google+.

    Some of them, certainly.


    I knew from the beginning that fecesbook was a borderline criminal organisation.
    People constantly rage about government intrusion and rights violation, but they don't give a thought about corporations that are even worse.
    The difference? People can vote to decide who runs the government. They have no such control over corporations.

    Not unless they were naive to think Zuckerberg gave a damn about what they think or want.

    He never has. The man uses people and throws them away. That's how he got Facebook in the first place. He's been doing it to Facebook users all along.

    I say no because the millions of people that actually do take things like this seriously are very few compared to the kids and idiots that use it.

    Let's be real here. Facebook and Google are corporations that are in the business of making money. The boards care only about themselves and their major stockholders. Their advertisers are their clients, not the users. The users are the product they sell.

    Google+ has as many problems, if not more, as Facebook. And neither cares about the concerns of their users unless it prevents them from being sold to advertisers.

    While there will be a great hue and cry from a few vocal users, only a few thousand (if that many) of the millions of users will jump ship. Their loss will have no effect on Facebook whatsoever.

    Welcome to life as a commodity, internet users.
