Reasons for quitting Facebook were mainly privacy concerns, followed by a general dissatisfaction, negative aspects of online friends and the feeling of getting addicted. Brenda Wiederhold, editor of the journal Cyberpsychology, Behaviour and Social Networking, which published the findings, said: “Given high-profile stories such as WikiLeaks and the recent NSA surveillance reports, individual citizens are becoming increasingly more wary of cyber-related privacy concerns.
Quitters’ “reasons for quitting Facebook were mainly privacy concerns (48.3 percent), followed by a general dissatisfaction with Facebook (13.5 percent), negative aspects of online friends (12.6 percent), and the feeling of getting addicted to Facebook (6.0 percent; other/unspecific, 19.6 percent),” stated the report. The study also speculates that being conscientious and addicted to the internet might be a reason to cut Facebook out of your diet—if you know that you’re addicted but don’t want to be.

On s’amuse comme on peut.

"This study shows that exposure to your own Facebook profile reduces motivation to perform well in a simple, hypothetical task. It does not show that Facebook use negatively affects college students’ grades, for example.

Future work is necessary to investigate the psychological effects of other Facebook activities, such as examining others’ profiles or reading the newsfeed.”

Evidence for the rise in narcissism continues to come up in research and news. A study by psychologist Dr. Nathan DeWall and his team found “a statistically significant trend toward narcissism and hostility in popular music” since the 1980s. Shawn Bergman, an assistant professor of organizational psychology at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina notes that “narcissism levels among millennials are higher than previous generations.” Researchers at Western Illinois University measured two socially disruptive aspects of narcissistic personalities — grandiose exhibitionism and entitlement/exploitativeness. Those who had high scores on grandiose exhibitionism tended to amass more friends on Facebook. Buffardi and Campbell found a high correlation between Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI) scores and Facebook activity. Researchers were able to identify those with high NPI scores by studying their Facebook pages.
Les réseaux, outils de l’instant, vecteurs du concentré, nous lient aux autres sans nous lier. Ils nous abreuvent de ragots parfois drôles, et parfois même utiles. Formidables instruments d’autopromotion, ils encombrent notre quotidien plus qu’autre chose. Nous y sommes addictés. Un seul instant nous ne pourrions vivre sans eux. Quel succès, n’est-ce pas, que d’avoir atteint les 5000 amis sur Facebook? Je vous assure, ce sont des amis, vraiment des amis. Des amis poids-plume. Ils sont “safe”, nous n’avons pas à les rencontrer, à boire un café, à leur parler de nos soucis, à écouter patiemment le récit des leurs. Ils sont tous là, sur l’écran, tard dans la nuit, tôt le matin. Vous éteignez l’écran, et ils ne sont plus là. Ils nous protègent de la solitude… mais nous laissent seuls. Liés à eux par l’image, la meilleure qu’ils aient d’eux-mêmes, la meilleure que nous donnions de nous, et par quelques mots, ici et là, cliqués à la légère. “J’aime”, mot si doux sur Facebook… Mais aimer sans s’investir, sans échanger, aimer sans s’aimer, est-ce de l’amour? Oui, oui, c’est de l’amour de pacotille, mais de l’amour quand même. Dire que même l’amour a changé… J’aime mais je suis libre. J’aime sans toucher, ni sentir, et sans voir vraiment.

In sum, I’m enjoying my life sans Facebook, and I imagine I’ll enjoy it even more now that Facebook wants to make it even easier to invade my personal space without real value in return. Maybe it will be useful for dating, but I have zero interest in this.

I just want a place to hang out with real friends. It turns out that there’s an even better place to do this than Facebook. It’s called “the real world.”

Sure, there’s a social networking aspect to it, but Google Plus is really Google’s version of Google. It’s the groundwork for a level of search quality difficult to fathom based on what we know today. It’s also the Borg-like hive-queen that connects all the other Google products like YouTube, Google Maps, Images, Offers, Books, and more. And Google is starting to roll these products all up into a big ball of awesome user experience by way of Google Plus, and that snowball is starting to pick up speed and mass.

God, you need to delete this page.

Whether it’s a hipster statement, like not owning a TV, or an attempt at privacy in the allegedly post-privacy age, people without Facebook accounts are definitely in the minority. What do you think when you meet someone (in real life, presumably) who doesn’t have one? Do they tend to be holier-than-thou? Weird? Secretive? Or just totally normal folks who don’t dig Facebook for one reason or another? Do you think there’s a stigma?

Seeking to explain this phenomenon, the researchers compared posting quick Facebook updates to quick hits of food. “Similar to a snack temporarily reducing hunger until the next meal, social snacking may help tolerate the lack of ‘real’ social interaction for a certain amount of time,” the Berlin team wrote in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science.

"Without Facebook, without Twitter, without Youtube, this would not have happened."
