Founder of WhatsApp ‘Brian Acton’ wants you to delete Facebook

The WhatsApp cofounder left the company six months ago, four years after Facebook acquired WhatsApp for $19 billion (the acquisition netted Acton as much as $3 billion from the deal). After leaving, he joined the Signal Foundation, a nonprofit organization that oversees the encrypted messaging app Signal.

He isn’t the first former exec to criticize the company, but he’s one of the most high profile to do so, which will no doubt be embarrassing for Facebook, which is facing numerous investigations, a tumbling stock price, and questions about its current leadership.

This will surely be another blow to Facebook.
