Facebook ~ Sucking up to its users?

Once again, after logging into my Facebook account, I was greeted with another message regarding their policies. Apparently they are now seeking input from their members:

Today we announced new opportunities for users to play a meaningful role in determining the policies governing our site. We released the first proposals subject to these procedures – The Facebook Principles, a set of values that will guide the development of the service, and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities that governs Facebook’s operations. Users will have the opportunity to review, comment and vote on these documents over the coming weeks and, if they are approved, other future policy changes. We’ve posted the documents in separate groups and invite you to offer comments and suggestions. For more information and links to the two groups, check out the Facebook Blog.

I suppose they learned their lesson from the enormous amount of bad press they received from their last policy change.

    For the second time in less than a week, Facebook users have fallen victim to a widespread attack due to malicious third-party applications. The latest attack is sending out notifications that users are in violation of Facebook’s Terms of Service.
