I did hear about and went to look for it but wasn't able to find it. It certainly wasn't in their interest, that many people find it so they can claim nobody is interested in it.

It's ridiculous for Facebook's spokesperson to claim the response was "disappointing." It's not disappointing at all. As pretty well everyone has commented so far, there was no prominent, upfront notice from Facebook about this issue.
Facebook knew that keeping the issue poorly publicized would result in exactly what they didn't want—a response large enough to make the vote binding. In blunter terms, Facebook conducted a stealth campaign; IT WAS RIGGED. Can't wait for those shares of FB to continue to plummet.

Not only do I use FB every day, I was even in my privacy settings just last week trying to get rid of Timeline Map (impossible). I sent feedback to FB too about it - no response from them. No mention anywhere in my privacy settings that a referendum was taking place, no email, message, or log in warning from FB like they put out for things that are mandated by law.
I use FB reluctantly because its a convenient way to keep in touch with certain people in my life; I don't like the way it's run or the liberties they take. There must be an answer to this.

Since there is little or no infrastructure required for social network, a Facebook replacement can pop up at any moment to make Facebook be the next Myspace.
