Suddenly, Everyone Is Quitting Facebook!


OK, well not everyone. Actually, just three people in recent memory are leaving Facebook behind:

  • Matt Cutts, Google’s search spam guy, has quit, according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek reporter Doug MacMillan.
  • Peter Rojas, cofounder of Gdgt and Engadget, deactivated his account yesterday. “Reasons why: 1. Tired of not having real control over what I’m sharing. 2. I prefer Twitter (and gdgt) for conversations. 3. I’m trendy.”
  • Paul Kedrosky, finance dude with great hair, also deactivated his account yesterday. “For those asking: Deactivated Fbook because a) I rarely use it, and b) reading ever-changing privacy rules up there with reading IRS regs.”

See… It’s officially a trend!

Of course, Facebook’s other 400 million users are staying put. And you probably will too. Why?
