I have been reading Slashdot for several months and I respect this forum. I am going out on a limb here, but I am looking for feedback on why Slashdot users think the general public is not as interested in protecting their online privacy as they are in using FB to explicitly describe their exploits during Spring Break in Mexico.
Our site, ThreadThat.com, was developed using VB.Net, SQL Server 2008, Telerik ASP.NET AJAX Controls, AJAX Uploader and wodCrypt ActiveX Component. We have been monitoring access to the site since its release and we have observed that most people that arrive at our home page via search engines do not progress past it. We have modified the Home page several times trying to find a design that encourages people to explore the site in more depth. That has been challenging and, for the most part, unproductive.
Do you think there are any circumstances where you would opt to use an ultra-secure site (verified by independent penetration testers — see our FAQ) like ThreadThat.com to communicate with a group of people instead of Facebook? Enlighten me — I'm all eyes.
