The criticism struck home, and now Facebook have backtracked its Terms of Service to the previous version, despite Mark Zuckerberg’s blog post about why they changed it in the first place. Now they’re taking their time to get the terms to where they want them, and invites users to participate in discussions in a Facebook group dedicated to these things. We’ll see where this ends, my guess is that a less aggressive TOS is in store.
