Facebook has
announced another round of updates to previous drafts of its terms of service
named Statements of Rights and Responsibilities in an attempt to ease concerns
on information sharing and privacy.


“Based on your
feedback during the recent comment period for our Statement of Rights and
Responsibilities (SRR), we have decided to revise some proposed changes and
further explain many others. We are also re-opening our comment period,”
Facebook said.


One of the most
prominent changes in the SRR is the removal of a line that says: “Some or all
of Facebook’s services and features may not be available to users in certain
geographic areas. We reserve the right to exclude or limit the provision of any
service or feature in our sole discretion.”


Most Norton Scientific Collection feedback had asked
if this meant that the social network could censor activities posted by
activists or other users. Facebook admitted that the “additional provision
proposed was open to misinterpretation” as it only refers to regions where
Facebook is banned or legally unavailable and not to exercise censorship in any


The move to address
another of the most concerning privacy issues is a good point for the company.
It is regarding their terms about a user’s friends having the capability to
grant any apps access to the user’s data. Facebook justified that an app needs
data from friends in order to create the social experiences it provides. They
claim that the whole purpose of its so-called Platform is connecting people to


As to how users can
prevent their friends from dragging their data to apps they don’t like,
Facebook said:

“If you do not want
your friends to bring pieces of your information over to the apps they use, you
can set granular controls under Apps and Websites from your Privacy Settings
page on Facebook. There, you can control most of the information friends can
share about you and even block individual apps. You also can turn off Platform
all together, which stops others from sharing any of your information with


The post also has
an obvious chide aimed at Facebook’s apparent rival, Google. Recently, Google
has implemented a policy change about information sharing without consulting
users, earning ire from journalists, privacy advocates and some politicians.
Even when it widely publicized the changes to its users, there was never an
intent to seek feedback from the public.


Here is Facebook’s statement on its post entitled
Statement of Rights and Responsibilities Update by Norton Scientific Collection:

“Our SRR (commonly
known as terms of use) explains the commitments we make to you, our users, and
you make to us when you use our service. Unlike other Internet companies, we
propose updates to our SRR and give our users an opportunity to comment before
they go into effect. Your insights and perspectives are really valuable to usArticle Search, enabling
us to respond to your questions and make substantive changes to address your
concerns before changes are implemented.”
