"Quit Facebook Day" Only Affects 2% of U.S. Users

submitted on May 30, 2010 by sandyshore in "Member's Lounge"
Have you heard of "Quit Facebook Day?" If not, you're not alone. In response to the recent Facebook privacy issues, a batch of users founded this celebration of-sorts (not on Facebook, obviously) in hopes that thousands more would join their commitment to deactivate their Facebook accounts come May 31. Well, that's tomorrow, and according to a new batch of research from Vision Critical, "Quit Facebook Day" appears to be a bust.

    The QuitFacebookDay website shows 28465 committed users right now. This this barely a dent in Facebook's 400 mln crowd Mr Green

      It's too bad this won't make a dent in Facebooks crowd or their privacy practices. I joined for coupons and freebies. Much of my info is bogus. No pictures, no friends - that way when I "like" another page I don't feel like I'm selling a friend out.
