NBC News reports:
Facebook’s mounting image problems hit a whole other orbit on Friday. Tech icon Elon Musk appeared to delete the official Facebook pages for two of his companies, SpaceX and Tesla, Inc. Musk’s moves come days after a whistleblower revealed that a data analysis firm tied to President Donald Trump’s campaign had harvested data off Facebook, resulting in widespread criticism and sparking government investigations. Musk responded to a tweet from WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton, who had initially drawn attention in the tech community for tweeting “It is time. #deletefacebook.” Facebook acquired WhatsApp for $16 billion in February 2014. Acton is no longer with Facebook or WhatsApp.
