Delete Your Facebook Account: 'Quit Facebook Day' Wants Users To Leave
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.
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.
"If you agree that Facebook doesn't respect you, your personal data or the future of the Web, you may want to join us," QuitFacebookDay.com explains.
"Facebook's real customer is the advertisers that they work with: NOT YOU," Facebook Protest's official statement reads. The soon-to-be protesters also ask participants to:
commit to not logging in or interacting with Facebook in any way. Be sure to log out of Facebook in all of your browsers no later than the evening of June 5th. On the 6th, be sure to not use Facebook connect or click any "Like" buttons: basically refrain from ALL Facebook related activity.
On the other hand, if you want to delete your Facebook account without waiting until May 31 (or June) here's how.
