Facebook Governance

At Facebook, the 30-day commenting phase has ended at the beginning of April.  Two documents are under discussion: a) The Facebook Principles and b) The Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (SRR).

User world-wide were asked to comment among other things the new directions on who owns the content created and posted on Facebook and the extent to which user data can be used by the site.

The updated documents will be available on April 16.
