Disgruntled Facebook users, angry over the social networking site's complicated privacy settings, have declared May 31 "Quit Facebook Day".

不滿的臉書用戶,憤怒在社交網站上複雜的隱私設定,已宣布5月31日為「停用臉書日」。

So far, more than 23,000 Facebook users have publicly committed to close their accounts, concerned that the social networking site is making it difficult for individuals to manage their data and privacy settings.

到目前為止,已有超過 23,000名臉書用戶公開要求關閉其帳戶,因該社交網站在個人資料管理與隱私設定上很難用。

The online petition was started by Toronto-based design strategist Matthew Milan and web technologist Joseph Dee, who claim Facebook is mishandling users' data.

這項線上請願是由多倫多的設計策略師馬修米蘭,和網路技術專家約瑟夫迪伊開始的,他們宣稱臉書沒有管理好使用者的資料。

[Joseph Dee, "Quit Facebook Day" Co-Founder]:

"We don't value the way that you do business. We don't think that you're an ethical company and we have a choice of where we choose to be and it's not on that network."

[約瑟夫迪伊,「停用臉書日」共同發起人]:

「我們不贊成你們作生意的方式。我們不認為你是一間有道德的公司,而我們可以選擇在哪裡,我們可以選擇不在他那個網路上。」

The "Quit Facebook Day" co-founder said the two men simply decided enough was enough, and that they would close their accounts.

「停用臉書日」共同發起人說,兩人只是決定“受夠了”,然後他們就關閉了帳戶。

[Joseph Dee, "Quit Facebook Day" Co-Founder]:

"We worked for like two days to set up a pretty quick and dirty website for people to sort of share the values that we had and put their name to it and that's how it was born."

[約瑟夫迪伊,「戒臉書日」共同發起人]:

「我們大概用了兩天,很快的設立一個簡陋的網站,讓人們可以迴響和我們同樣的想法,並且可以把他們的名字放上去。它就這樣誕生了。」

Dee said the response to the campaign had been overwhelming.

迪伊說,針對這一活動的反應非常熱烈。

[Joseph Dee, "Quit Facebook Day" Co-Founder]:

"It's been crazy. It's been nuts. It's turned into an international story."

[約瑟夫迪伊,「戒臉書日」共同發起人]:

「這太瘋狂了。它已經失控了。它變成了一個國際新聞。」
