Quit Facebook Day

(WFLX) - Are you ready to delete your Facebook account? There is a push to get people to quit the social networking site by May 31.

It all steams from a growing number of users say Facebook doesn't respect its members, and so they're closing down their pages.

The group claims Facebook is selling your information, such as your name, interests and who you are friends with to third party Web sites. "The issue here is that when Facebook first started, you couldn't add friends unless you verified they went to your college or university," explained a spokesperson. "It started out really water-tight, and that has just increasingly eroded, and some people are saying they don't know what Facebook will do next and don't trust the company."

Facebook curently has 400 million plus users, but it's estimated that less than one percent will actually delete their account.
