The Facebook scandal has been going on for the past week. Last week, it was revealed that the company’s personal data of 50 million users was used by the British company Cambridge Analytica, which was responsible for Trump’s online election campaign.
Due to this, the market value of Facebook company has fallen significantly and billions of assets have been lost. Also, there is a movement among people to delete their Facebook pages.
For example, Brian Acton, one of the founders of the WhatsApp messenger
which was bought by Facebook in 2014, called Chinese Student Phone Number List on Twitter on the 20th of this month, “It’s time to delete Facebook.”
Yesterday, Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, promised to delete the Facebook pages of his companies and immediately disabled them.
Before that, he said that he did not know that his company had a Facebook page. When people on Twitter asked Elon if he would delete his official pages, he replied, “I didn’t know that existed. It has been deleted now.”
Soon, the Facebook pages of Tesla and SpaceX companies became inactive
These pages had millions of “Likes” and regularly CU Lists published information about the company’s new products.
After that, when a user asked him if he should delete his Instagram page, he replied, “Instagram is relatively fair, so you probably shouldn’t delete it. I’ve never used Facebook and I don’t think deleting it will cause problems for me or my companies. We have no need to pay for self-promotion or support from others.
In general, the relationship between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg is not very good. Last year, a SpaceX rocket crashed while trying to deliver a Facebook satellite into orbit. Zuckerberg took it badly and made a statement criticizing SpaceX.
On the other hand, Elon Musk suggested to Zuckerberg to relaunch Facebook’s satellite.
