30,000 people quit Facebook in Protest!

Large groups of users are protesting against the Facebook’s privacy policies, and it has been reported that more than 30,000 people heeded the call to abandon Facebook, the social networking giant.

The protesting group states that for us it is about two things, best intentions, and fair choices. In our point of view, Facebook does not do well in either department. Although, Facebook provides you with choices about how to manage your information, however, they are not the fair choices. The group reported that 32,749 users have dropped out from the Facebook’s universe.

According to Google data; 540 million people, who are distinctive in nature, monthly visit Facebook, which is to some extent around 35 percent of the entire Internet community.

Facebook is re-developing the privacy controls in the face of a hail of condemnation that it is betraying the trust and confidence, which has made it the world’s largest and leading social media network.

Facebook revamped its privacy control settings page to endow with a single control for content, which will be useful in “significantly reducing” the amount of information that is always visible to everyone. Facebook also claimed that it is providing its users with more control over websites or third-party applications to access the user’s information.

The critics are continuously demanding Facebook to make every users information extremely private as default, and let people allow all by themselves as what they want to share and what not.

Again, we can just wait, and watch what Facebook comes up with this time, and all we can expect is that it is providing its users with the privacy controls as per expectations or not!
