After the news came out about the controversial emotion study by the world’s biggest social networking site, Facebook, people all around the world have been worrying about their privacy online.
Facebook already know a lot about you. When you were born, where you did your schooling, who are your friends, your best friends and also about your love life. Your contact number, your email address, where you went for vacations etc etc.
Knowing all that information, and then experimenting with your emotions is very serious and controversial matter that was considered to be a threat to people’s privacy and emotions. Many organisations had decided to go against this, and just like them, Just, a non-profit organisation, has launched a 99 days Facebook challenge for the users of Facebook, under the name 99 days of freedom.
What’s it all about?
99 days Facebook challenge is a response to the Facebook’s mood experiment that involved hundreds of thousands of people from all around the world. This organisation is challenging you to spend 99 days without using Facebook (The reason we call it 99 days Facebook challenge.).
In the meanwhile they will contact you after 33, 66 and 99 days to check whether this experiment have any impact on your daily life? Or more importantly your happiness.
