The social network will start rolling "Community Actions" out to its US users on Monday. It's been testing the feature for several weeks in a couple of markets, TechCrunch first reported Sunday, and is building on that existing pilot.

In the past, activists have been able to post petitions to Facebook via third-party platforms like Change.org or Causes.com. Community Actions simplifies the process and gives Facebook direct oversight to monitor and take petitions down if they violate its community standards.

Not to forget it gives FB even more data about yourself, so the profiles are worth even more when sold to others.
