In February, Facebook launched a process to allow its members to vote on how the social network will be governed and the majority of users did not seem to care.
In a vote open to all of Facebook's 200 million users, only just over a quarter voted on the content of what will form the site's terms and conditions. 74 per cent of the 600,000 members who voted chose the new terms put forward called the Facebook Principles and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities
The vote was cast after Facebook tried to change its service terms but had to revert back to its old version when the change prompted nearly 20,000 users to join protest groups because it extended Facebook control over user content to profiles that had been shut down.
"We strongly believe that our proposed documents satisfied the concerns raised in February," said Facebook's legal expert, Ted Ulloyot. "The outcome of the vote and commentary from informed third parties seem to support this conclusion."
Facebook recognised only a small per cent of its users took part in the decision and said it would consider lowering the proposed 30 per cent threshold that the new service terms was going to establish for a user vote to be binding.
"We are hopeful that there will be greater participation in future votes," said Ulloyot.
The final results are currently being reviewed by an outside auditor.
