Top 10 Reasons You Should Quit Facebook

Dan Yoder lists his. When he posted his list on Facebook, Facebook deleted it without notice or warning. Ed has reposted to see what will happen. Posts to this blog show up on my Facebook “Notes” page (albeit sometimes not until 18 hours or so have passed since they appeared on the blog), so I’m essentially conducting the same experiment Ed is. I’ll let you know what happens.

I’m still thinking about ditching FB, at least for personal use. (I would need to continue using it for work-related reasons.) I would hate to have to, but as I said earlier, their behavior around privacy issues is bordering on egregious. I’m willing to tolerate certain honest mistakes in the name of research and learning, but it is growing increasingly difficult to think that Facebook is about anything beyond pirating marketable data without compensating the owners. There’s a word for that, and although it dates to Exodus, it applies today — on a number of levels and in a variety of contexts.

UPDATE: Link fixed.


  1. Don Yoder looks a lot like the Hedgehog.

  2. I don’t think your link links to what you think it links…

  3. You are correct. Fixed now. Thanks.

  4. Wow, sounds like someone is seriously jealous that they didn’t think up the idea and now has to slam it because they were too stupid.

  5. Out of curiosity, what makes you say that?
