Brian Acton made a huge sum selling a company he helped establish, WhatsApp, to Facebook for $16 billion, and now he has joined the #DeleteFacebook movement.
Acton, who left WhatsApp this year to begin his own establishment, joined the #DeleteFacebook trend on his Twitter, composing:
“It is time. #deletefacebook”
It is time. #deletefacebook
— Brian Acton (@brianacton) March 20, 2018
The hashtag began trending after it was disclosed by Facebook that data of more than 50 million users was misused in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.
The company’s value had dropped $37 billion since the reveal.
According to The Verge, Acton, just last month, invested $50 million into signal, another instant messaging app.
