The online poll to determine which Facebook policies will be put into place on the social network closed this morning after one week of voting — and a serious lack of user interest.
That’s roughly 1 in every 2,600 users — or 0.00038% of Facebook.
Facebook’s call to action last Friday asked users to read and vote on which Statement of Rights and Responsibilities and Data Use Policy they preferred to use.
So why did Facebook users not vote for which privacy statement they preferred? Perhaps they didn’t see the link to vote on their Facebook pages (it was located on the left side tool bar next to their news feeds). Or, maybe, as a couple of Mashable readers commented, both options seemed too similar.
That means 230 million people would have had to vote during the eight-day window the poll was open.
What do you think of this low voter turnout? Do most Facebook users simply not care about privacy? Tell us in the comments.
