Facebook Listens, Reverses Terms of Service Change

Facebook has listened!  After being the target of criticism for it's new updates to the terms of service, they have changed face and reverted back to the old terms of service. 

Below is the message posted to all Facebook accounts letting users know of the change back to the old terms:

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. For more information, visit the Facebook Blog.

If you want to share your thoughts on what should be in the new terms, check out our group Facebook Bill of Rights and Responsibilities.

Kudos to Facebook for listening to the outcry of it's user base.  I would like to point out that the message above does make it sound as though they will have new terms of service, but hopefully the controversial pieces will be left out.
