Peoples are calling out to delete Facebook after a leak of 50million users data. A WhatsApp co-founder Brain Acton told everyone to remove social networking account from their digital life. It’s worth noting that Acton sold his company for $19 billion to Facebook back in 2014. (the Same week I spent $2 on WhatsApp renewal, it becomes free for everyone).
