Facebook: whether you love it or hate it, few can argue against the claim that the social networking site has become an almost unrivaled mode of internet communication since it was launched in 2004. However, far from simply being a way for geographically distant friends and family members to share life updates and cute kitten videos, Facebook has evolved into a major source for news, political disagreement, and aggregate data collection.

As news about Facebook and scandals involving Facebook mount and other social networking platforms ascend in popularity, some users are making the choice to leave Facebook for good. Why leave Facebook? In reality, the reasons for departure abound. For some, it's the sense that their personal data is not safe and is being used for purposes with which they do not agree. For others, it's the feeling that the social platform has become less social and more antisocial. Still, for others, it's a combination of many factors.

But what about you? What's made you want to quit Facebook for good?
