Who knew that one of the most powerful ways to tell someone that you’re not on Facebook would be one of the oldest: Put it on a T-shirt -- or a coffee mug.
That’s what Tim Woods has done with his site, 'I’m Not on Facebook', the hub du jour for those who choose to wear their hearts (and their real-life status updates) on their sleeve.
"The site was a birthday gift for my wife because she could not stand Facebook," Woods, a Virginia-based graphic designer, tells ReadWriteWeb. "She kibitzed with my mother about it, who also hates Facebook. And I thought -- there's a t-shirt in this." He linked up with Cafe Press to send shirts to close friends and family. It was then that the status of the anti-status became cemented.

Aside from a website, there’s a Twitter account that spews 140-character diatribes or lazy sighs about leaving Facebook. But Woods' site has become much more than a hate-fest for all things Zuckerberg -- not only is it a declaration of freedom, but it’s part of a movement.
Dig into I'm Not on Facebook's Twitter account and you'll find friends of FacebookSabbatical, a site for people who just need a break. What's not to "Like?"
However, the anti-FB crowd is hugely outnumbered -- surely one in seven humans can't be wrong.
