Co-founder WhatsApp urged its subscribers to delete Facebook

One of the founders of WhatsApp, Brian Acton (Brian Acton) urged subscribers in their social networks to remove Facebook. He published a report against the backdrop of a scandal involving the use of data of 50 million users for Trump’s election campaign.

In 2014, Facebook bought the WhatsApp messenger for $ 16 billion. Acton left the company in early 2018 to work on a new startup.

March 19, it became known that the company Cambridge Analytics, bypassing the rules of Facebook, used data collected by the developer of a third-party application. Presumably, this information was used by Donald Trump’s headquarters to set up effective advertising companies in the social network.
