Brian Acton, the co-founder of messaging service WhatsApp (which Facebook bought in 2014 for $19 billion) is now joining the chorus of the deletefacebook movement.
A tipster alerted us to the fact that Acton made the same call... on Facebook ... as well.
Since the sale of Whatsapp (which has made Acton an incredibly wealthy man), Acton has been actively financing more secure (and private) messaging platforms for users.
Acton has already used some of his Whatsapp wealth to give $50 million to the Signal Foundation.
While some may say it's hypocritical to reap millions from Facebook and then call for users to jump sip, Acton has always had a penchant for supporting privacy.
Back in its earliest days, WhatsApp's stated goal was to never make money from ads.
