Facebook future after boycott

Al Jazeera looks at social networking site's future after thousands quit over privacy issues.

    The social networking website Facebook has drastically changed the way many communicate and share information online.

    But the company has been accused of abusing members’ privacy settings, prompting more than 23,000 users to quit Facebook on May 31.

    But with usage nearing half a billion people worldwide, will the boycott have any notable effect on the website?

    Al Jazeera's Cath Turner reports from New York.
