Delete Facebook

Zero Hedge–Three years after Mark Zuckerberg made Brian Action a billionaire, by paying $22 billion for WhatsApp, the messaging app’s co-founder has a clear message for the billions of social media drones worldwide – #deletefacebook.

MarketWatch notes that Acton and fellow co-founder Jan Koum sold the messaging service WhatsApp to Facebook in 2014 for $22 billion. Acton received about $3 billion in the deal, and has a net worth of about $5.5 billion, according to Forbes.

After staying on for three years, Acton quit Facebook in September, and is now a major backer of rival messaging service Signal, which boasts encryption to make its messages resistent to government surveillance.

And now, after the revelations of the last week, building on an ever-growing mountain of issues for Facebook, Acton said, in a tweet overnight:



Action was referencing the online movement that is gaining steam in the wake of revelations that the personal data of 50 million Facebook users was used without their permission by political data company Cambridge Analytica during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Could it really happen again?

  1. Facebook eliminates “face time”. No wonder our society is so hosed up! Grow a pair, get a life, feel the sunshine! You don’t need the CIA.

  2. ZUCKerberg owes every Victim of His data betrayal a million dollars as reparations.
    ZUCKerberg wants to censor who uses FACEBOOK —- but says WE cannot censor who comes into Our house?!
    Take the locks off his doors. Take those WALLS down from around ZUCKerberg’s houses. NEVER allow him to file a “breaking & entering” complaint because ZUCKerberg wants anyone to be able to “break & enter” America.
    By the way …..ZUCK thinks he can just “share” our house/Nation …..
    he never served in uniform so he should “share” all his money with those who were wounded saving HIS FREEDOM and PROPERTY.
    Since ZUCK does not recognize Our property rights to Our country then he relinquishes all property rights to “his” money.
