Anger and rejection against Facebook’s newly applied policies last month giving birth to many social ventures worldwide. Many of the ventures are delicately trying to grab a pie from 450 Million users base of Facebook by launching similar but regional social networking portals across the globe. No matter its Pakistan, USA, Europe or India. Out of all new alternatives of Facebook, a revolutionary movement has taken place which is demanding to pledge for Facebook boycott. Its is www.quitfacebook.com launched on 12 May 2010 by Toronto duo – Joseph Dee and Matthew Milan.

They even defined May 31st as “Quit Facebook Day”. The day when they people across the globe, pledge to quit Facebook on quitfacebook.com, will delete their account from Facebook.

From India nearly 25,000 Facebook users have committed to unplug themselves from the social networking site on Monday. The users are calling their movement to stop using Facebook planning a ‘digital suicide’. They are protesting against the website ignoring privacy issues and not being open about their policies.

Though 25,000 is a miniscule population of the over 450 million global users of Facebook, the Quit Facebook forum has created quite a buzz in the past few weeks. 

However, the ‘quit Facebook day’ has not been much of success in India. The 17 million Indian Facebook users are not really interested in joining the movement. Facebook has acknowledged its mistake and will revise privacy settings from June onwards. It would be interesting to see how far this movement get going and also seek the background help from various alternatives of Facebook worldwide.
