A group of people urged to quit Facebook (a very known social networking site)last May 31st. It has been said that it concerns privacy matters.
Why are we quitting?
For us it comes down to two things: fair choices and best intentions. In our view, Facebook doesn't do a good job in either department. Facebook gives you choices about how to manage your data, but they aren't fair choices, and while the onus is on the individual to manage these choices, Facebook makes it damn difficult for the average user to understand or manage this. We also don't think Facebook has much respect for you or your data, especially in the context of the future.
For a lot of people, quitting Facebook revolves around privacy. This is a legitimate concern, but we also think the privacy issue is just the symptom of a larger set of issues. The cumulative effects of what Facebook does now will not play out well in the future, and we care deeply about the future of the web as an open, safe and human place. We just can't see Facebook's current direction being aligned with any positive future for the web, so we're leaving.

Some would quit facebook concerning privacy of the site or it might be a black propaganda to lessen the Facebook users.
Whatever it is, Just don't over post your personal data to avoid any problem.
