WhatsApp cofounder: 'It is time' to delete Facebook

Создатель Whats App призвал удалить аккаунты на Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook bought WhatsApp for $19 billion in 2014 but Acton remained with the company for several years before quitting to start "Signal Foundation" earlier in 2018.

UK's Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham earlier said she would be applying to court for a warrant to search the offices of Cambridge Analytica-the UK-based political consulting firm accused of using the data of 50 million Facebook members to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. He had been associated with Facebook after WhatsApp's acquisition by the former back in 2014. The company is taking a financial hit, too-Facebook lost $50 billion in market value this week.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Acton joined the chorus of voices calling on people to delete the social network.

Following Supreme Court's order, Karti Chidambaram can not be arrested until March 26 by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). Karti Chidambaram , the son of former finance minister P Chidambaram, was earlier sent to judicial custody till March 24.

"His call came as a former Facebook employee told MPs the company had a "wild west" approach to looking after its users" data. The Freedom of the Press Foundation was previously funding Signal. Included among dissenters is Sean Parker, the first president of Facebook, who talked about the social media app's negative effects on society last November.

"Signal is a rival of WhatsApp, albeit one that pitches itself much more to security-minded users", according to Fortune. This data was later used in the formulation of the social media plan for Donald Trump's presidential campaign. In his latest post on Facebook about the topic, Zuckerberg has also provided his account of what happened leading up to the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

'It was personally identifiable, it was your name, in some cases your email addresses, in some cases your private messages - they just basically allowed [it] to leave Facebook's servers intentionally and there weren't really controls once the data had left to make sure it was being used in an appropriate way'. As per the reports of Cambridge Analytica, a right-winged consultancy regarding the political matters said that since the last weekend, the price stock price of Facebook has reduced by 11%.
