Do You Know Anyone Quitting Facebook Today?

In addition to Memorial Day, today also marks Quit Facebook Day.


Coincidentally, today’s GraphJam features a poke on Facebook.

 

According to the website, Over 32,000 people have committed to quitting Facebook today. Sure, that’s barely a scratch in Facebook’s 400+ million users, but it’s still a decent size to openly pack up and leave at once.

    Just stumbled across your site on Google Reader, and consequently stumbled across this post. I’m one of those 30,000+ that left Facebook on 5/31, and I’m amazed at how much time I have now! Wow, what a time-sucking vortex it is. I left primarily for reasons showcased in your graphic here, and secondarily for “privacy” concerns…though I spew forth half-formed ideas in my own blog that isn’t private…oh well. Not that it’s all this way, but I found how much I was neglecting the close friends (and family) just to surf the latest snippet from someone I barely knew 20 years ago.
    I believe the saying goes “Make new friends, treasure the old. One is silver, the other gold.”

    Anyway, love your site! Congrats on the baby too.

    I did leave fb, and I was tempted to get back, wondering what my friends were saying and but I had to force myself to hold back. It IS addictive and I had to get over it like when I stopped smoking. I have the urges to go back smoking, I stopped 4 years ago, and also to face book which I stopped just 10 days ago.

    May be it is time that the Surgeon General issued a warning…..

    @Jimmer & @sagramtha — Thank you for the comments! I always love hearing from new visitors, and I really was wondering if anyone had left Facebook that day…glad to finally get confirmations!
