#DeleteFacebook Movement Gains Steam After 50 Million Users Have Data Leaked

Cambridge Analytica news has Facebook users ready to call it quits

People are jumping on Twitter to announce their breakup with Facebook.

The hashtag #DeleteFacebook is trending on Monday after the New York Times reported this weekend that the data of 50 million users had been unknowingly leaked and purchased to aid President Trump’s successful 2016 bid for the presidency.

Twitter was littered with users sharing the hashtag:

TheWrap isn’t telling you what to do, but if you were looking to #DeleteFacebook as well, here’s what you need to know. First off, there’s a difference between deleting and deactivating your Facebook. Deactivating essentially takes your Facebook profile off the map, but if you head back over to the social network and login, your profile will pop back up.

Still, if you’re going all-out, there’s a simple three-step “delete” process once you’re logged into Facebook:

Go to “Settings”

1.  When you find “Manage account,” click “Edit”

2. Then click “Request account deletion” and follow the steps

4. That’s all you need to know — but there’s a holdup. Facebook says it “may take up to 90 days from the beginning of the deletion process to delete all of the things you’ve posted, like your photos, status updates, or other data stored in backup systems.”

Digital natives love Fakebook for the same reasons we love this site.

To us, it's the difference between hard news and entertainment.

And just like if this site goes down, Fakebook users will search for something similar if that goes down.

And naturally Travistock has lined up a variety of start-ups for just that eventuality.

It's not the medium or the channel brand.

It's the user.

And digital natives have been trained to avoid looking for interation in the fields, parks and playgrounds we as children gravitated to.

That's what society needs to solve.

How do we do that?

Personally I don't have the answer.

But that's the question.

You hit the nail on the head.

Do yourselves a favor, delete Twitter too. Everything you do on the internet is being watched, catalogued and stored for later use...

How do we find out if our info was leaked out is the question.
