Pocket-Lint: As pressure mounts on Facebook over its privacy settings, the news that 60 per cent of respondents to a Sophos questionnaire were considering quitting the service wouldn't have gone down to well with Mark Zuckerberg and the gang.
I am certainly one of that 60%.
But why? And go where? Facebook are working on fixing the issues, and there'll soon be better privacy controls that should solve many of these latest outcries, not to mention that the issue has certainly been magnified by the media. Zuckerberg is learning the hard way, but at least he's being forced to adapt.
Go where? OUTSIDE. OUT WITH PEOPLE.
HELL NO! IM AFRAID OF WHAT THOSE "PEOPLE" MIGHT DO TO ME.
i dont see why i would quit. what else would i do during my free time, work and other menial computer activities. Its like wow or any addicting mmo you quit but you will be back eventually. i put up my defenses on my account and never had any serious info up. if anything this is teaching the casual user about internet safety and how its not cool to put your ssn up as a status.
People are just lazy to tweak their privacy settings. I say total fail.
I've tweaked mine so much over the past year or so, and have no problems whatsoever.
Social networking as a whole is all about getting people's details. Which is why I hate everything about it.
