Delete Facebook- Said WhatsApp Co-founder


Four years ago, in 2014, Facebook bought WhatsApp for $16 billion. Jan Koum and Brian Acton were now its co-founders. Acton left the company last year to start his own foundation and he isn’t done merely with WhatsApp but on the other hand, Jan Koum continued to lead the company. Yesterday, in a post on twitter, Acton wrote: “It is time. #deletefacebook.” This is one of the only five tweets Acton has posted in the last few years. Through this tweet he told his followers to delete Facebook.


Acton did not immediately respond to a request for comment. WhatsApp declined to comment on the matter. Also last month, Acton invested $50 million into the Signal Foundation(a messaging app rather than a social media platform).
Though this post arrived at a period when Facebook is under scrutiny regarding the alleged misuse of 50 million users’ private data but still the motivation behind this comment is unclear.
The WhatsApp was founded earlier in 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum before Facebook purchased the company for $16 billion. Acton became billionaire through this one deal.
WhatsApp is now owned by Facebook and it is also a great competition for Signal but Acton hasn’t asked its users to stop using it.
