Facebook has sold my email address to spammers
I have 100% proof of this because I use a special email address that only is used to login to face book. So in my opinion Zuckerberg is a criminal. Spamming is illegal.

Re: Already Did. Not Missing it one bit. More free time to do what I want to do.
to all those that feel you have to quit... you have deeper issues then you think. if you have to "quit" facebook to be happy, maybe you should be questioning how you define happiness. And to those that say "quit facebook and have a life", why can't one do both? Communication between individuals has skyrocketed with the use of technology. You get to see, cumminicate, and share things with your friends (and yes REAL freinds too) from all over the world like never before. You get to see others lifes and experiences, their children as they age, and all these thing that you coudln't before. How is this a bad thing? 

Can you do too much of one thing? Ofcourse, but doesn't mean the one thing has to be terminated, just simply balance it out. Quitting is not nessarasay and is very piontless. If you are an adult, act like one and stop being a whiny little baby.

Group love
Yes I could and do regularly! I don't get alot of value from facebook, I prefer more personlized online expereinces. The group sharing is more of a privacy issue for me!

Already Did. Not Missing it one bit. More free time to do what I want to do.
Anyone you really care about you see quite often, the other 4,000 'friends' - really ?  It's not needed unless you are building a client list for potential customers.

Facebook is well past its prime, and more people are going back to the email & direct instant messaging on their phones - since most smart phones include messaging - and it is MUCH faster - why waste time bouncing things up and down to facebook.

The random experiments performed upon users only makes the situation worse, and did they even send an apology email to everyone they experimented on, trying to make them sad ? 

Take back control of your time and spend it with fiends in real time, in the real world, doing real things together.  You will experience much deeper relationships when they are not just another blip on the screen.

Unplug and Live your Life for Real!

Not to worry, covered by Facebook's terms of use
Yes, I could, but I would miss it. I like Drew Conry-Murray's suggestion that a few million of us conduct experiments on Facebook, that the slanted and misleading postings that we'd put up would be covered by Facebook's terms of use. Ha.

Have already quit.
Got tired of the insanity and feeling like a lab rat, so I quit a week ago. Not missing it a bit.

no problem
I stopped this year in the middle of February after being active on FB daily since February 2008. I used to have it open all the time and would react every time there was a notification on my phone, and that's not healthy. I am happier without it.
