Anti-social behavior: The Facebook exodus

“The Social Network,” a film about Facebook and its creators, hits theaters nationwide this weekend. There is controversy between the filmmakers and Mark Zuckerberg, the 26-year-old billionaire founder of Facebook, over the film’s accuracy — but that’s not the only controversy.

People are defecting from the site in record numbers, often citing privacy concerns. Correspondent Daniel Sieberg files this report.
