Brian Acton - WhatsApp's Co Founder Says It's Time To Delete Facebook


Facebook has gotten itself into a series of controversies regarding user data and privacy issues lately.

The  current controversy started after it was discovered that Cambridge Analytica got access to data of millions of users on the social network. Now, even the co-founder of WhatsApp, a company owned by the social network giant Facebook, has told the world that it is “time to delete Facebook.”
Brian Acton, one of the creators and founders of the most used and popular instant messaging application WhatsApp,  posted a message on his Twitter simply by saying “it’s time” to “#deletefacebook”.

 Facebook bought the well-known and most used instant messaging application WhatsApp in 2014 for the sum of 1.6 billion dollars, and Brian Acton left the company in 2017. After leaving the social network giant Facebook, Acton invested 50 million dollars in Signal, a messaging platform known for its emphasis on security and privacy.

The social network giant Facebook could face very rigorous scrutiny by authorities around the world after the revelations of Cambridge Analytica. In the United States and the United Kingdom, lawmakers have expressed concern about this possible security breach (which the social network giant Facebook refuses to call “leakage” of data), and even the British Prime Minister became interested in the case directly.

Whether you agree or disagree with Acton’s suggestion, I recommend that you check which social apps have your personal data and disallow all those that you do not recognize or no longer use.
