Bill Gates has deleted his Facebook account, after he found it impossible to handle the requests for connections, and also… getting thousands of mortgage refinance requests due to the sub prime crisis and thousands more friend requests from non friends. He had some advise for others who get hooked/addicted to all those tools to stay connected through network.
It was reported, a popular brand had put a contest to exit facebook to qualify for prizes.
This is the latest craze, obviously. Like everything else, when used within control, no harm. Too much of anything is bad!
Bill Gates may inspire many more users to quit such platforms and utilize time more effectively. I am definitely one of the candidates !
