If you're afraid of Facebook's intrusive new "privacy" practices, you might want to consider participating in the Quit Facebook Day campaign. Much like The Great American Smoke Out, Quit Facebook Day is trying to entice people to break up with Facebook in one mass exodus on May 31, 2010.
I suspect Facebook users either don't care about giving up their privacy or they think the concept of quitting as a group is lame. Facebook has over 400 million users worldwide, and Quit Facebook Day has only enticed about 12,000 people to quit.
