‘Quit Facebook Day’ Wants Users To Leave

As controversy swells around Facebook’s latest changes to its privacy policy–which is now longer than the Constitution and offers some 50 settings and over 170 options–users’ interest in deleting their Facebook accounts has soared.

A group of dissatisfied Facebook users have teamed up in an effort to organize a mass, coordinated exodus from Facebook–and they’re using social networks to do it.

Their site, QuitFacebookDay.com, asks users to “commit to quit” Facebook on May 31 by signing their name or Twitter handle to the list of pledges.

The cause has attracted several hundred pledges–about 780 at the time of writing.

There’s also a Facebook Page devoted to the planned exit.

For those who oppose Facebook’s new privacy policy, but find “Quit Facebook Day” too extreme, there is an alternative that doesn’t require immediately letting go of Facebook-based online social connections, photos or videos.
