6 Reasons People Are Leaving Facebook


Facebook is at the forefront of our fake farming epidemic, and according to a survey published in September, 48 percent of users quit over privacy concerns.

However, The Onion published its own survey today, and it appears that privacy issues are no longer a big reason for leaving Facebook.

Receiving almost 9,000 likes and over 1,000 shares, here were the main reasons people fled:

  • Discovered how to “like” things mentally – 27 percent
  • Committed 671 birthdays to memory – 19 percent
  • Family in feud with Zuckerbergs – 17 percent
  • High school friends all dead now – 15 percent
  • Not enough politics – 12 percent
  • Ex is doing too well – 10 percent

Poking other Facebook users will surely be missed, but poking someone in real life is equally entertaining, and annoying.
