Closing my facebook account

Due to privacy reasons, I'm closing my facebook account permanently.

Today Mark Zuckerberg made $2 billion of which pretty much everything is ad-revenue. This is that cringe moment for me. We've been selling ourselves to this guy who's making $$$ out of our secrets & Information. His net worth is about $33.3 billion & he is now ranked the 17th richest person in the world leaving behind the co-founders of Google at 18th & 19th positions.

I'm not jealous, I'm not mad, I'm just sorry for realizing this late. I like facebook (the earlier one) back then it was all about Connecting people. Its been proved & published in mainstream media & on Internet archives that facebook sells information + I've my own personal reasons. Even though people know this, they still continue because they don't want to lose their virtual fame. The Implications to this will be in the long run my friends.

All of this may sound lame to you at the moment. But even after understanding the risks, i don't want to continue like this. So here i am wishing you 'adieu'.

  1. Well then what you expect him to do? Facebook is huge website with huge database and servers.. Establishing it's own server cost very much and saving every single profile details too.. To cover up that cost they show ads and all.. everyone who makes his/her own site earn money like this only.. nothing new ._.

    1. You should know the difference between a commoner & billionaires. Costs of servers are not a matter of concern for Mark Zuckerberg. The deal here is about him selling our personal info to government & 3rd party advertisers. This is what concerns me the most.

      The $$$ that he earns from our information is 50x times compared to the hosting charges of entire facebook database.
