CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, joined the #deleteFacebook movement not just in words but actually in actions.

Musk deleted the Facebook accounts of his companies Tesla and SpaceX.

Funny enough, his deletion started from his reply to a tweet.

Brian Acton who sold his company WhatsApp to Facebook in 2014, tweeted: It is time: #deleteFacebook.

Musk had replied the tweet, asking: “What’s Facebook?”

When people asked if he was going to delete the accounts of his companies, he said he didn’t know they existed. “Will do,” he said, and went ahead to delete them.

The #deleteFacebook trend is in response to the revelation that Cambridge Analytica obtained data of over 50 million Facebook users and used it to try to influence the 2016 US presidential race in favour of Donald Trump.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg had in a statement said the company is cracking down on how user data is shared.

    Elon Musk has always been beefing Mark Zuckerberg since their AI fall out. Some of this things aren’t the fault of Facebook.

    I know someone who used google’s (yes the same google) Cpanel to upload wellsfargo, boa and chase scampages and trick people into handing out their banking information before stealing their money via online transfer. Should we crucify google because of that? I am disappointed in Musk.

    It’s true that Facebook messed up. However deleting the application is going to far. It was through facebook I was able to connect and still connect with friends and family in a long while.

    Elon Musk deleted the FB page of SpaceX and Tesla, this shows the fear of losing data. Facebook news of data leaks also scared the Tesla Giant, so imagine what general people are feeling right now.
