Will You Really Quit Facebook?
Many people have gotten annoyed with all the recent changes Facebook has made — and the news of the even more major ones on the way, such as the “Timeline” providing an online compendium of users’ lives — and have been threatening to leave Facebook for good.
But Christina Warren argues on Mashable.com that Facebookers are for the most part going nowhere, writing that, quote, “cutting the service out of your life is easier said than done.” She says quitters will start having second thoughts the minute they learn something like their cousin’s new baby pictures are up on Facebook, or they’re sent a link to a video that requires a Facebook login to see.
Warren also notes that an increasing number of apps and services will be reliant on Facebook, noting that after popular streaming music service Spotify integrated with it last week it added a new requirement for new sign-ups that they must be members of Facebook.
