Matt Cutts & Other Google Engineers Close Facebook Accounts

I was pointed to a tweet by Matt Cutts that indicates he’s “deactivated” his Facebook account:

Picture 10

He in turn points to a GigaOM post that explains how to block some of the “instant personalization” changes that Facebook is implementing as part of its Open Graph announcements on Wednesday.

This is a fairly drastic step by Matt; is it a protest or is he personally concerned about privacy?

Postscript: Apparently this is a wider “movement” than just Matt. Other Google engineers are doing the same: http://bit.ly/dwKHim

Thanks Tim Cohn for pointing this out.
