Facebook to let users vote for 'bill of rights'

Facebook Facebook will put potential changes to the public vote after it came under heavy criticism from users last month over its terms of use.

Earlier today the site's founder, Mark Zuckerberg, announced plans to enshrine a Facebook 'bill of rights' which will rely heavy on user input and opinion. "We're going to notify everyone who wants to be notified and give them time to comment," Zuckerberg told journalists earlier today.

The news come just a week after Facebook was forced into an embarrassing about turn on changes to the popular social networking site's terms of service. Users reacted badly to what was widely viewed as an attempt to muscle in on the data ownership of personal material, but Zuckerberg & Co. decided to listen to their 175m fanbase and change tack.
