Over 50% Voters Don’t Care About Social Networking
Posted by pratyushkp
Last week, there were rumors about Facebook shutting down on March 15. We thought it would be the right time to ask people what their reaction would be if Facebook were to shut down for real.
The response we got was quite amazing – a huge 52 percent of people who voted said they “don’t give a damn about Social Networking”, indicating that Facebook shutting down would have no impact on their lives.
Next, 17 percent said they’ll fall back on competitor websites like Orkut or MySpace if FB ceased to exist. Maybe they need to keep a tab on Google’s upcoming Me or Google +1.
Moving on, 13 percent hinted that they’re perpetually stuck in the matrix of the online world, and that Facebook shutting down would actually give them an opportunity to have a real social life again.
Nine percent of voters said they’ll simply follow their peers to whichever social networking site they migrate to. Honestly, that’s how I moved from Orkut to Facebook in the first place. Lastly, another 9 percent hardcore Facebook fans said that it would be the end of their online social life if FB quit on them.
In other news, Facebook has received quite a few accolades for being the most visited website on the Internet last year, not to mention creator Mark Zuckerburg endowed with TIME magazine’s ‘Person of the Year’ badge.
