Two privacy groups are urging Facebook to reverse its decision to stop letting users vote on controversial policy changes. Up to now, the social networking giant has let users vote on proposed changes if they get more than 7,000 comments, and the tweaks have been scrapped if more than 30 percent voted them down. Facebook says that it has grown so huge that it's too easy to muster 7,000 critics, making the user input mechanism unwieldy.
