It was the first time Facebook announced it would be "less of a dick," analysts told TheYellowDailyNews in exclusive interviews.
"When Facebook changes its terms of service, it usually means user privacy is affected," said Goldman Sachs social media analyst Alan Rukmelstein, in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews. "This is a game changer."
Two lines in the new user agreement say: "We keep hearing from our users that their privacy matters. So, for now on, we promise to be less of a dick when it comes to your privacy."
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg declined comment.
Facebook said in a statement that users' privacy comes first, and that how the company treats its users' data is openly disclosed in its terms of service.
"This is a free social media platform and everything is out in the open," the company said in an exclusive e-mail to TheYellowDailyNews. "Nobody's head is being held at gunpoint forcing them to use our service."
