"It is time", Acton ominously tweeted.

It was unclear whether Acton's feelings about Facebook extend to his own App. WhatsApp co-founder, Jan Koum, continues to run the company and sits on Facebook's board. "Today, along with Massachusetts Attorney General Healey, we sent a demand letter to Facebook - the first step in our joint investigation to get to the bottom of what happened".

Facebook has come under fire this week after reports emerged that political data analytics company Cambridge Analytica accessed the data of over 50 million users of the social media network without their permission.

Even the founder of WhatsApp - which Facebook bought in 2014 for $19 billion - tweeted "It is time #DeleteFacebook". While Koum stayed with Mark, Acton reportedly left the company to start his own company called Signal.

In tit for tat, Russia to expel UK diplomats
After the brazen poisoning of a former spy, British Prime Minister Theresa May quickly pinned the blame on Russian Federation . The 67-year-old had been one of Russia's most powerful figures in the years after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

According to Sandy Parakilas, an ex-employee of Facebook who was the platform operations manager responsible for policing data breaches by third-party software developers between 2011 and 2012, he had previously warned senior executives that its "lax approach" towards protected data posed serious risks of data breach. Facebook knew about the data leak back in 2015, but the public only learned after reports in the New York Times and Observer last weekend.

Many people have turned against Facebook after the recent revelation that data of 50M Facebook users was breached in the US Presidential Election, this data played an important role in the outcome of the election.

Facebook is being accused of not protecting the privacy of its users.

Sandy told Guadian that Facebook did not use its enforcement mechanisms or audit external developers to ensure data was not being misused. Wylie's attorney said Sunday that Facebook "privately welcomed" Wylie's help and then publicly suspended his account.
