Facebook might end voting on policies

Facebook is proposing to end its practice of letting users vote on changes to its privacy policies. The company says it will continue to let users comment on proposed updates.

The world's biggest social media company plans to announce that its voting mechanism, which is triggered only if enough people comment on proposed changes, has become a system that emphasizes the quantity of responses over the quality of discussion.

Facebook began letting users vote on privacy changes in 2009. As part of the 2009 policy, users' votes only count if more than 30 percent of all Facebook's active users partake.
