Facebook: Updates to Data Use Policy and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities

Facebook Support for BusinessFacebook recently announced some proposed updates to our Data Use Policy, which explains how they collect and use data when people use Facebook, and their Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (SRR), which explains the terms governing use of their services.

The updates provide you with more detailed information about our practices and reflect changes to their products, including:

  • New tools for managing your Facebook Messages;
  • Changes to how we refer to certain products;
  • Tips on managing your timeline; and
  • Reminders about what’s visible to other people on Facebook.

They are also proposing changes to their site governance process for future updates to their Data Use Policy and SRR. Facebook deeply values the feedback they receive from you during their comment period but have found that the voting mechanism created a system that incentivized quantity of comments over the quality of them. So, they are proposing to end the voting component in order to promote a more meaningful environment for feedback. They also plan to roll out new engagement channels, including a feature for submitting questions about privacy to our Chief Privacy Officer of Policy.

Facebook encourages you to review these proposed changes and give us feedback before they finalize them. Please visit the “Documents” tab of the Facebook Site Governance Page to learn more about these changes and to submit comments before 9 AM PST on November 28, 2012.

You can also follow and like the Site Governance Page for updates on this process and on any future changes to our Data Use Policy or SRR.
