Brian Acton, co-founder of WhatsApp Inc 

Brian Acton made a fortune selling a company he co-founded, WhatsApp, to Facebook for $16 billion, and now he’s joined the #DeleteFacebook movement.

Acton, who left WhatsApp this year to start is own foundation, joined the #DeleteFacebook trend on his Twitter, writing:

It is time. #deletefacebook

The hashtag started trending after it was revealed by Facebook that data of over 50 million users was misused in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.

The company’s value had dropped $37 billion since the reveal.

According to The Verge, Acton, just last month, invested $50 million into signal, another instant messaging app.

    This Brian guy is an opportunist he hasn’t really voiced his Ulterior motives acting like he really care about the people whose oersonal info was disclosed. Je made lots of money selling whatsapp to fbook. Anyone on any social medial platform should know that there is no privacy while using these app so him been former owner of whatsapp also know was aware of privacy concerns while he owned the app now his coming to speak like his a better person. Boy take several sits u never talk wetin your true motive be.
