Facebook Crumbles After Huge Complaints

At close of business on Tuesday Facebook announced a retraction of their new Terms of Service which suffered from widespread criticism. They finally folded after a group of privacy experts threatened to file a formal complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.

Facebook are now saying they will revise the Terms of Use in conjunction with the thoughts of Facebook users. I think that if they are going to make changes as significant they should at least give users a warning so they can delete their account before being told that doing so will not prevent Facebook having the rights to their information.
