Since its inception, Facebook’s approach to privacy has drawn ire from users. But those complaints don’t often effect the sites popularity, which has skyrocketed since its debut as Harvard’s online yearbook.
However, Facebook’s latest expansion may actually have business repurcussions. Why? Because the site’s growth has slowed. Perhaps Facebook is starting to hit a saturation point online, but if the various groups trying to get people off Facebook find success, Facebook could be in trouble.
Every since debutting its new instant personalization feature last month, the din of ongoing Facebook privacy concerns has grown louder. And now upset users are organizing.
In addition to the ongoing anti-Facebook groups on the social network, users are increasingly looking for ways to get off Facebook. If you type “how do” into Google search today, the second option is “How do i delete my facebook account.”
