Facebook does a U-turn (at least temporarily)

Logging in to facebook this morning, I am greeted by this message:

"Over the past few days, we have received a lot of feedback about the new terms we posted two weeks ago. Because of this response, we have decided to return to our previous Terms of Use while we resolve the issues that people have raised"

Looks like another unpopular Facebook change has been thwarted by user pressure.

There is a Times article on this here.

I think this kind of thing will continue to happen as the owners of Facebook desperately scrabble around for a way to make it profitable (which will always be to the detriment of the users)
