Even if there are 400 million users on Facebook as of today, there are still many people who are afraid to use or sign up for Facebook. Some people have a username, but don't dare post anything. This presentation talks to the top 6 reasons I have noted for why people don't wish to use Facebook. It is used as an opener for my social media presentations.

  • GO, go, go on the matrix! be conform and lose your identité & your real personality. Oh yes, but everybody does that! It's in! Real communication start in the corner of the street no in the web! Go to see a real person, invite him to the coffee shop, take time to have a real exchange, heart to heart no moose to moose, and you will like it; and you will like him or her!

  2. by Minter Dial minter@themyndset.com This list is for all you who don’t want to believe in boys wearing jeans down at their knees those bearded programmers overnight millionnaires or people who use three screens at once. Top 6 Checklist: Why I’m not going to use Facebook.
  3. Number 1 It’s dangerous people can see everything you do
  4. “they can post anonymous criticisms” “I don’t want to share my information with everyone” “they will find out who are your friends” “with Open Graph, they will know what I like to read and buy” “people say the most stupid things” it’s dangerous
  5. 2 Number it’s a big waste of time I know people who get addicted
  6. it’s a big waste of time “no one has ever given me a compelling reason to join” “I get everything I need from Linkedin” “I’ve heard some places where the employees spend countless hours on it” “I don’t want to mix business with pleasure”
  7. Number 3 my kids are on it it’s just a bunch of games
  8. “my kids will see what I’m doing” “it’s not serious” “who knows, next my parents will be on it, too” “see what they are putting up on their wall?” my kids are on it
  9. 4 Number it’s not useful it will probably disappear
  10. it’s not useful “you can’t measure the return” “no one can build a company on Facebook” “I only believe in real relationships” “I can’t use my own social network”
  11. 5 Number it won’t last something else will come along
  12. it won’t last “what if Google buys Facebook” “I’ll stick to what I know” “clearly, it’s just a bubble about to burst” “show me the business model”
  13. And finally, last but certainly not least: 6 Number As if that were not enough... I don’t know how it works
  14. don’t know how “the rules are always changing” “there is no instruction manual” “how do I deal with those requests from strangers who want to connect?” “I don’t know how not to ‘accept’ friends”
