Facebook is taking quite a beating these days for its cavalier security and privacy practices, as well as its invasive, ad-whoring nature. But wail and gnash your teeth as much as you like, you know you’re not going to delete that account. Business Insider put together a list of reasons why this is so:
If you’ve used Facebook for more than 30 seconds in the last couple of years, you’ve no doubt been asked to be a “fan” of a movie, a food product or maybe your favorite consumer news site. But, apparently that didn’t work well enough for the companies that invest millions in marketing on Facebook, because the whole “fan” thing will soon be replaced with the more popular “like” option.
