Back in 2014, Facebook acquired Whatsapp worth $16 Billion from its founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton.
Of course, they made billions from Facebook with Koum continuing to lead the company. Meanwhile, Brian Acton quit earlier this year and established his own foundation “Signal”, an independent alternative to WhatsApp.
Shockingly in a recent tweet, Acton urged his followers to delete Facebook!
It is time. #deletefacebook

This remark comes after enormous public outrage over the misuse of the private information of millions of Facebook users by Cambridge Analytica, the organization that claimed it helped Donald Trump win the White House.
The social media giant’s shares plunged Monday as it was pounded by criticism at home and abroad over the shocking revelations.
Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar and Republican John Kennedy called for Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg to appear before Congress, along with Google and Twitter’s CEOs.
Now #deletefacebook is trending worldwide on Twitter!
#deletefacebook trends in response to Cambridge Analytica.
