Facebook Revises Terms Amidst Users' Censorship Concerns

Censorship 0

hypnosec (2231454) writes "Facebook has revised its terms after users complained that it could be misconstrued as an excuse for censorship, resulting in the social networking site reopening the consultation into other changes made to those conditions. Users sent in their concerns over the suggested amendments to Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities in the midst of a consultation period run in March, with the site revealing on Friday that it would open up another comment session until 27 April for any proposed changes. "Based on your feedback during the recent comment period for our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (SRR), we have decided to revise some proposed changes [PDF] and further explain many others. We are also re-opening our comment period," Facebook stated on their governance page, the only place where users can find out about any changes made to its terms."
