Facebook users stage a protest

A group of Facebook users have decided to stop going on Facebook for a day in protest to the changes that Facebook has undergone in the past few months.

A group of Facebook users have decided to stop going on Facebook for a day in protest to the changes that Facebook has undergone in the past few months.

Dissatisfied with the new layout, more than 1.3 million users will turn off from dinner time in each timezone. The 24 hours they’ll take themselves off will be spent doing other things like going out to a movie, talking to friends… anything provided it’s not Facebook-ing.

The 24-hour boycott is intended to show Facebook just how many users are opposed to the recent layout changes and another 1.4 million might just stop using Facebook for that day.

The initiative – created by disgruntled Facebook user Boris Kelevra – has encouraged Facebook users brave enough to take the 24 hour Facebook-less plunge to “go back to real life! have sex! go to restaurant… just enjoy LIFE!”

Personally, I’d be surprised if half the users that are doing this will actually be able to make it the full 24 hours without logging on. But even if they do, good for them. It’ll be one step in a right direction whereby they’ll be offline for a change instead of waiting for the next status message update.
