Facebook's Privacy Policy Changes Forced Into Worldwide Users' Vote [techcrunch.com]
Max Schrems, the Austrian founder of Europe Vs. Facebook, has forced Facebook to put proposed policy changes up for a vote by all its users. By mobilizing his privacy group to flood Facebook’s Site Governance page with pasted messages, many more than 7,000 comments were received on the proposal — the threshold for triggering a vote. Europe Vs. Facebook is demanding sweeping changes to Facebook’s product rather than the small policy changes found in the proposal

Today the one-week voting period opens on a set of a relatively benign changes and Facebook will notify users by web and mobile. If over 30% of Facebook’s active users, or 230 million people, vote for the changes they’ll go into effect, and if they vote against they’ll be scrapped.

I followed one of the vote links and they want me to install an App?! I have tried to avoid all FaceBook Apps on my profile to date.

I dislike installing Apps, too.

When any app asks for access to my private information I refuse it.
