The Facebook polls have closed and, even though the social network had its biggest turnout ever, too few users cast ballots to have a say in the company’s proposed policy changes.

Nearly 9 in 10 of those who voted were against the proposed changes, but only about 668,000 people cast ballots. Facebook requires that 30 percent of Facebook users participate for a vote to count.
