Notice of changes to users
Further, sending e-mails to registered users alerting them to the revisions is also an option. Doing so should increase the perceived adequacy of notice. However, this method may not be applicable to services that do not require user registration. In those circumstances, posting on a blog regarding the revisions may prove more helpful.This may also allow notice to be provided to individuals that have not received an e-mail update. For example, Dropbox, Google, LinkedIn and Yahoo often include these updates on their blogs.
