The biggest and the most popular social networking site, Facebook, is letting all of its less than a billion users worldwide vote on the social network's current privacy policies starting today.

According to a report, the voting referendum has something to do with the updates on Facebook's privacy policy that the social network behemoth announced last month, just before the site rolled out its Initial Public Offering (IPO).

The new Facebook proposals include new sections on how the social network giant uses its users' informations, as well as the possibility of displaying ads about other websites not connected with Facebook.

Facebook is encouraging all of its users worldwide who are interested in having their voices heard and their votes counted to log-in to Facebook and go to their Site Governance page.

To note, this is only the second time in the history of Facebook that they have let their users vote on privacy policy amendments. The first one happened in 2009.

Voting on the updated Facebook privacy policy will end on June 8, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

Now this is something to cheer about. So what are you guys and gals waiting for? With Facebook's on-going problems on how government regulators and their millions of users view their policies on privacy matters, this is now your big chance to let Facebook's management hear all of your voices and concerns on the very thing that really matter to you the most...your privacy.
