WhatsApp co-founder tells everyone to delete Facebook
2018-Mar-21 | By News Admin

Amid the turmoil of the Cambridge Analytica data scandal, WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton told his Twitter followers to delete Facebook.

“It is time. #deletefacebook,” he wrote on the social media platform.

Acton has almost 21,000 Twitter followers.

Facebook acquired WhatsApp for US$19 billion in 2014. Acton remained with the company for several years before quitting to start the Signal Foundation earlier this year. His WhatsApp co-founder, Jan Koum, still leads the company and sits on Facebook’s board.

Acton also applied for a job at Facebook in 2009, and posted about his rejection on Twitter at the time.
