A new poll by a U.K.-based Internet-security firm has Facebook subscribers leaning toward the dislike button.

Sophos has surveyed 1,588 participants over the past week. The $64,000 question: “Do you think you will quit Facebook over privacy concerns?”

The choices were A) I already have, B) Highly likely that I will, C) Possibly, D) I don’t think it’s likely and E) No. Of the users involved, 16 percent responded that they had already quit, while a combined 60 percent went with either highly likely or possibly.
