As it seems, there are Facebook users who are jealous of the money-stream that Mark Zuckerberg’s company Facebook has been able generating in the past few months and years. The fact that nothing comes for free never came up in those people’s head. But this aside. The people who left Facebook for Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ (as if these companies make no money out of your data) have flocked together on the website, im-not-on-facebook.com. And the site is… selling mugs and t-shirts. Oooh, selling, that isn’t right is it? So far the anti-capitalist rhetoric in practice.
Frankly, it smells a bit parasite like, using a company’s name to say you don’t like that very company because it earns money on your data and then selling mugs and t-shirts holding the Facebook trademarked on it. As it seems the site also caters to people who think that their Facebook friends can’t compete with real life friends. Now that must have been a tough nut to crack… Or as a colleague pointed out, who would even ‘like’ such people.
Let’s see how long they can keep that up using the name Facebook in their url.
