I Quit Facebook Part II: In Which I Am Immediately Vindicated

May 6, 2010

So I quit Facebook a couple of days ago. Not completely, but I disabled my account. I think I’m going to delete it completely after finding out today that Facebook is adding “applications” to our profiles just for visiting other websites. And there’s no clear way to disable this behavior.

Unfortunately I don’t think many people will care about this, although I think most people should. Facebook will probably keep on growing. But at least one guy thinks Facebook is dying. I’m not sure I see Facebook dying anytime soon, but I can see it relegated to a niche community, kind of like MySpace is still used by musicians. Who will still be on Facebook in five years? I’m guessing mostly older women.
