So yesterday was “Quit Facebook Day“…and I can’t help but to wonder how big the exodus actually was. I posted my own personal take on it all yesterday. In any event, and in this spirit, a quote and a toon:
“Probably the worst way to protest is to exit the conversation and shout from the sidelines. Will they exit Twitter and Google too for collecting private information? I suspect that would make them unemployable. At least, ironically, they’ll be easily identified by professional recruiters and HR folks through the standard tools and the digital trail they leave as they exit and discuss their position.” – Stephen Abram, Stephen’s Lighthouse
I got a kick out of Peter Broelman’s cartoon post yesterday. I can imagine:
I did not quit. I thought about it, and decided that the most important people Im connected with there are never going to show up on other platforms, so I'm sticking with good ol FB for the long haul. I recently used the tool at http://www.reclaimprivacy.org/ to check my privacy issues and Im now much less exposed.
