Is Facebook becoming antisocial?
The Pew Internet & American Life Project found that Facebook users are becoming less open in their online behavior. Research has shown that today more facebookers are deleting friends, comments or tags of themselves on pictures than in 2009.
‘More privacy’ seems to be a new trend on Facebook. More people are cleaning up their friend lists and limiting access to their pictures and other info to specific groups of friends.
On the other hand, Facebook today has much more users than two years ago, and they create much more content, some of which is bound to be unwelcome or embarrassing at least to someone. The more friends people have, the more chances they have to eventually be tagged on a bad picture or receive a comment they don’t want to show on their profile.
So is Facebook really becoming antisocial, or is it just an inevitable consequence of the ever-growing amount of information around us?
