I can't imagine that the Facebook faithful would just walk away from their farms, their Mafia Wars and their daily status updates. But a survey by security firm Sophos shows that 60 percent of Facebook users - yes, 60 percent - are considering quitting over privacy concerns.
Are they really willing to jump ship or are they too locked in to a Facebook world? Well, consider this: Just last week, one of the top trending searches on Facebook was "delete facebook account," Sophos reported. And Danny Sullivan over at Search Engine Land has put together a pretty compelling report that suggests that Facebook;'s active user growth has dropped 25 percent to 50 percent over the privacy concerns.
While it's true there's a pretty strong commitment to Facebook among its users, there was also the same sort of commitment toward AOL and MySpace at one point, too.
It's hard to believe that Facebook has once again botched a privacy setting
