WhatsApp Co-Founder: “It is Time” to Delete Facebook

The Infinite Brief
WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton urged people to ‘delete’ their Facebook accounts now, during an address made to students.

He has called for people to ‘reject’ Facebook by deleting its family of apps from their smartphones and other devices.

In 2014, Acton sold the instant messaging service to Mark Zuckerberg for $19 billion and left in 2017 over its plans to introduce ads to the app. 

Acton has been openly critical of Silicon Valley firms like Facebook and Google in the past for their seemingly profit-driven approach at the expense of people’s data.
