WhatsApp co-founder: 'Delete Facebook NOW'

(London Daily Mail) WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton urged people to ‘delete’ their Facebook accounts now, during an address made to students.

Mr Acton, now the head of non-profit WhatsApp rival Signal, blasted Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for trading privacy for revenue by allowing ads on his platform.

He has now called for people to ‘reject’ Facebook by deleting its family of apps from their smartphones and other devices.

It comes after the world’s largest social network has been beset by a string of privacy scandals.
