Recently as a social experiment, a guy by the name of Sam Laird decided to deactivate his Facebook account to see what effect it would have on his everyday life. How would living without it change his social interactions?
“A recent New York Times article titled “The Facebook Resisters” profiled young-adult Facebook abstainers who point to concerns about privacy, alienation and information overload. But I’m interested in a broader question: In a world where it now seems more generally accepted to be on Facebook than not be on, what’s it like to opt out?” Sam writes.
His story is very interesting as he describes his findings.
So what do you think? Could you ever deactivated your Facebook account?
