In mid 2018, a movement called #DeleteFacebook gained some steam with a list of high profile celebrities and companies deleting their Facebook accounts in the wake of massive privacy concerns, Facebook’s illicit use of user data, and the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
If you are concerned about Facebook’s data breaches and their complicit allowance of Russian interference in the 2016 US election, you might be thinking about quitting, too. If so, I’d encourage you to take a break from social media to see how little you really miss it. You can always join the growing party of quitters!
Here is a list of people who have recently left Facebook. I will add to this list as the story continues to unfold:
- Steve Wozniak
- Will Ferrell
- Jim Carrey
- Elon Musk, Tesla, and Space X
- Pep Boys
- Farhan Akhtar
