    yeah so many people I know have said they keep thinking about getting off of there becuase they are disrespectful to privacy issues and changeing their format every 5 seconds…

    It used to be an exclusive website for Univeristy students. Didn't it used to be invite only? The University students were upset that they opened it for everyone. Then, their parents and Gen Xers started using it. They made it popular using it as a free, Classmates.com. After Gen X found everyone they knew and finished catching up and comparing lives with one another, they left or waned too.

    I just deleted my account because of the third party polls and crap, like the one I got yesterday that asked if my friends think I'm gay. Quite frankly I don't care what they think, but it's gotten worse than high school.
    Not to mention the arguments that seem to ensue on peoples walls over seemingly innocuous comments that people take in the wrong context.
    I've had friends get into knock down drag outs over what was an inside joke between a friend and I and other people not getting the joke.

    Maybe people want privacy…and/or they don't care what some guy they went to high school with is having for breakfast…they don't care what people "like"

    Some of my friends have already deleted or deactivated their account, I have too in the past, and I will delete it permanently in the future. Mark Zuckerberg is an appalling and shady human being. I don't trust him, nor the people he works with, for one minute. Assange is right, best spy tool to ever have been invented.

    I got out months and months ago. It felt like chaos and I didn't like it one bit. Ick ick. I'm glad others are feeling similar.

    I HATED having a Facebook account - got one a few years ago because old friends wanted to keep in touch that way, but then old acquaintances/annoyances also wanted to keep in touch, what a pain and invasion of privacy. Also, I am sure that Facebook sold my information - I began receiving emails from companies that I had seen in their advertising. How else would those companies have gotten my email address? Then someone hacked my Facebook and posted several times (as me) that I won an iPad by doing one of those things where you try different offers. I looked like a total idiot because of those posts, so I finally just outright cancelled the thing. Facebook sucks. And so many companies now have contests for which you need Facebook to enter. I've started to write to companies to ask them how to enter without having Facebook, because I hate Facebook. Maybe if enough of us do, they'll get the message.

    Please stop making us click "read the rest of the story" it completely ruins my ability to read through all of the stories quickly. Especially since the site has become slow. I will sit through the loading but making me click on every story is absolutely ridiculous.

    I just keep mine for the games…if I wasn't so addicted to them, I would have closed it a long time ago!

    I de-activated for fear of anyone from high school finding me, and plus I don't want people from work knowing what I'm all about ;)

    It's all about privacy issues, not about saturation.

    I'm one of those millions of people. I just don't see the point in it anymore. Waiting on the next big social network.
