We Want Your Feedback

February 26, 2009ByPaul C. Jeffries

Earlier today, we announced a new approach for users around the world to play a meaningful role in determining the future policies governing Facebook. As important members of the Facebook community, we would like your feedback on two new proposed documents: the Facebook Principles, which defines your rights, and the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, which will replace the Terms of Use and the Developer Terms of Service (as well as the Advertiser Terms and Conditions). These new documents will cover all use of Facebook, including use of Facebook Platform through such core features as Facebook Connect, canvas page applications, and Share.

We've created two groups to discuss these documents, and welcome your comments. For a deeper look into the philosophy behind this decision, please read Mark Zuckerberg's blog post. Comments will be accepted in each group for 30 days, closing at 12:01 AM Pacific time on March 29. You can find these groups here:

We look forward to your feedback in these groups. In addition, we welcome your feedback in the Developer Forum.

Paul leads the Facebook Platform Developer Operations & Support team.
