Nearly a year ago, we committed to an open and transparent system of governance for Facebook. Specifically, we now post all proposed changes to our governing documents before they go into effect and solicit feedback on these proposals from the people who use Facebook. Since we started this unique processóin fact, we think we're the only major online service that does thisówe've gone through several successful rounds of changes, and your comments have been invaluable to the process.
All web services occasionally have to change their governing documents to accommodate new products. They just may not tell you about these changes, much less give you advance notice. Today, we're giving you that notice and beginning the process of listening to your feedback.
