Facebook polls users on service terms update
The social network begins asking its users for their reactions to its recent terms-of-service change. The poll features live results.
The recenthas been significant.
Even after CEO Mark Zuckerberg issued a statement on behalf of Facebook regarding the issue, it appears that Facebook wants more feedback from its users. Facebook has begun to run a poll in its users' News Feeds, asking them their opinion on the TOS change. The poll gives three options: no, I don't know, and yes.
Second, this is a great usage case for its newly introduced. The poll features live results, as seen in the screenshot below, but unfortunately, the user cannot access these results again after they have voted.
As you can see, the Facebook community is speaking loudly on this issue. The votes are leaning toward "Yes," with a significant portion being uninformed about the issue and answering "I don't know."
The users who think that the TOS should remain the same only account for 6 percent of the total user base. It's great to see that Facebook, at the very least, wants to hear what their users are saying. Hopefully, we will see more creative uses of the polling system in the future.
