The online poll to determine which Facebook policies will be put into place on the social network closed this morning after one week of voting  and a serious lack of user interest.

of 900 million users, a mere 342,632 voted on which privacy policy would govern the site.
That’s roughly 1 in every 2,600 users or 0.038% of Facebook.

Facebook’s call to action last Friday asked users to read and vote on which Statement of Rights and Responsibilities and Data Use Policy they preferred to use.

Facebook said that if the poll didn’t receive at least 30% of users’ votes, the company would make the decision of which privacy policy to use on its own.

That means 230 million people would have had to vote during the eight-day window the poll was open.
