Is the Facebook TOS debacle finally behind us? Let’s hope so.

After seeking feedback from users, Facebook today announced the preliminary results of the site “governance vote”.

The preliminary results show that about 74.4 percent of Facebook users opted for the new Facebook Principles and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities over the existing Terms of Use.

From the official Facebook blog:

So, what is next? Assuming the auditors confirm the preliminary vote result in favor of the proposed documents, we’ll be adopting the Principles and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities as the governing documents for the Facebook site. We’re pleased that users supported the proposed documents and validated our efforts to respond to their concerns. You can expect to see the new documents on the site in the coming weeks. After that, all future proposed changes to the Principles and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities will be subject to the notice, comment and voting provisions of the documents.

So there you have it. Tada! Crisis averted. They all lived happily ever after.  Or is it?

Did Facebook do everything it needed to do to abate this P.R. disaster?  What do you think?
