If people see their friends quitting on Facebook it could feed on itself. Depends if the average Facebook user has somewhere else on the internet to dump their photos and thoughts for peer review.

Does Instagram + Twitter = Facebook-lite?

I quit FB six months ago after they deleted the account of someone I follow on Twitter (but not FB). I miss some of it, especially being able to look up old friends. I also needed a FB account for some sites that require a FB login to write comments so I recently created a mini-FB page just for that purpose. My mini-page says no friends are wanted and has no 'likes', etc - just the bare minimum info required - for FB to target ads toward me. And, of course, no pictures of me or my 'friends'.

FB owns Instagram, so switching to Instagram doesn't get Zuckerberg out of your life. ... Now's the time for newbie alternatives to make their move.

Not going to quit FB, but my guess is that Zuckerberg is loosing money on me as I login twice a month or so and never click ads... Guess this is a third option?

Yes, it's a brave new world. To think that Aldous Huxley was talking about scientific servitude in the 1930's. People must love their servitude. He also saw the development of genetic engineering, mood altering drugs, the destruction of the family and the end of the consumer society.

Huxley knew what was coming because the technocrats had it planned since the 30’s. It just has taken longer to implement then they had hoped.

Tesla's competitors have not been sitting on their hands or surrendered the electric car market to the upstart. A gruesome crash, production problems, growing debt, and the fact Tesla is burning through cash is causing investors to question Tesla's high stock valuation. The article below delves into these issues.

You can't really quit FB as long as the website you visit uses FB login for comments. That little icon will transmit your IP and website you visit to FB even if you ignore it. This is a little creepy but they do track your IP and can probably link that IP to individuals. Then there is Google...

the cartoon on tax policy is completely false. either dr murray knows it's false or has no idea what he's talking about. "flipping" stocks is all taxed as income and the guy flipping burgers likely pays zero federal income tax. the issue of "carried interest" is incredibly small and applies to almost no hedge funds. it applies almost exclusively to private equity shops, almost none of which "flip" stocks.

The free to view and free to use business model dependent on advertising revenue was always going to be abused in the interest of profit. This model is dead. From now one these companies can only survive if they swop to a pay to use or pay to view model which guarantees privacy. They led the market up now they are leading it down. This is only the beginning mind you. When it becomes clear that profits and the economy is tanking, only then will the real crash occur and that is imminent. Contrary to FactSet stating that S&P 500 profits per share rose 17% the BEA report today shows that profits were flat. Huh, say that again, profits were flat.

Couldn’t get the video from Snowden’s tweet to play, 32,400 people are “talking about it”.

FB exec yammering on in 2009 interview about how they “would not sell” user’s personal data. What a load of bunk!!
