Under pressure from a German law student Facebook have had to allow European Facebook users access to some of the data which Facebook have been gathering about them.
Facebook wanted to change their privacy policies again but declared that they would not if 30% of their membership voted against it. How likely is it that even 5% of all Facebook accounts ever created are active?
Facebook’s voting mechanism did not partly work unless browser security was dropped and security plugins disabled – even then it did not work. Was the vote simply another Facebook data mining opportunity?
