news: facebook apologies to to lgbt community

Standard

via TechCrunch:

After weeks of backlash over Facebook’s real name policy, namely from members of the LGBT community who have had their Facebook pages suspended due to drag names, Facebook has met with members of the community and apologized for any hardship they might have caused.

Facebook’s VP of Product Chris Cox made a statement today on Facebook apologizing (on behalf of the company, it seems) for any pain caused, and explaining how this situation came to be. The statement also included promises to improve the current real name policy to include all different types of people without risking the safety of other users.
