After the uproar concerning Facebook’s newly proposed terms of service, a user vote has resulted in favour of the new terms. About 75 per cent of the 600,000 voters apparently didn’t mind handing the site ownership of personal data, including pictures, video and profile information (even if users delete their accounts afterwards). The new documents will take effect in the next few weeks. It seems Big Brother is alive and well in social networking, just a shame we can’t give him a good poke in real life.
