Gang Stalking World

United we stand. Divided they fall.

Are people quitting facebook in droves?

Are people quitting facebook in droves?

It’s hard to say, but according to the article, 11 million people in the U.K., and U.S. alone quit facebook, due to privacy fears, and shallow conversations.

Now since I don’t use facebook myself, it’s hard to know if the conversations, are shallow, but I have have heard concerns, about privacy fears, and I can see that, that’s likely where this is going. As good as facebook is, and Mr Zuckerbergs intensions to get the planet online, are not the incorrect things, it might be time to take a moment and reflect on facebook, does the service still do it for you? Is it still all that you thought it would be, if there are readers of mine out there, that do actually use facebook.

Facebook users are committing ‘virtual identity suicide’ and quitting the site in droves over privacy and addiction fears

Increasing numbers are taking part in what’s been dubbed ‘virtual identity suicide’ and deleting their accounts.

Virtual Identity Suicide, that’s so harsh, but maybe the privacy fears, are due to having to give up the cell phone, number, before being eligible to use the service, the face of all your friends, scanned and banned, or rather allegedly cataloged to use the service, or the fact that, the police openly admit, in articles to using facebook, when they want to catch someone?
Mayhaps those are some of the situations that are sparking fears, far be it from me to say.

Reasons for quitting Facebook were mainly privacy concerns (48.3 per cent), followed by a general dissatisfaction (13.5 per cent), negative aspects of online friends (12.6 per cent) and the feeling of getting addicted (6.0 per cent).

Well that’s a break down of the stats, happy facebooking, or interneting, if it’s yours’ or mine, look into it.
