has over 250 million members, with 50 million of them registering for the social site
in past 90 days, ever wondered what their secret is to retaining members?Do you think people stay on Facebook so they can continue to share photos and updates with their friends, connect with their favorite brands, or get clued in to the latest events or to get poked? Maybe, but the real secret to why you keep your Facebook is because Facebook plays with your emotions and guilts you into staying on longer.
When I tried to deactivate the Facebook account, it takes you to a page where Facebook prominently displays photos of five of your friends, and shows a message, “Are you sure you want to deactivate your account, [friend name] will miss you.” …. i was just curious and hit the refresh(f5) key and guess what came up? it repopulates people randomly from your friend list.
Huh… what were you thinking Facebook? But nice try I should say… What do you think? Post you comments below!!
