But, if users were to stop using Facebook all together because of these problems, the problems would be fixed. Facebook would lose a majority of its users and then they would fix the problems but it would already be too late. People believe that it is not an issue if it is not happening to them and that is not fair to the people suffering. They do not see all the problems that Facebook has because they have not experienced them. Facebook has become and is still becoming a terrible idea.
