(CNN) Users have til Monday to vote on more proposed changes to Facebook’s policy, including the ability of users to vote on future privacy changes.

Facebook has put up a custom voting app powered by a third-party company for this vote, and the results will be tallied by an independent auditor.

“This feedback allows us to respond to your questions and make substantive changes to our proposals before they are implemented,” Elliot Schrage, Facebook’s vice president of communications and public policy, said in a blog post announcing the vote.

Facebook proposed the latest changes to its Data Use Policy and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities on November 21.

Users and privacy groups immediately expressed concerns over the modifications.

In addition to a proposed end to public voting on these types of issues, Facebook wanted to change to how users control who can send them messages.
