Recently, we learned that Facebook allowed third parties to access the data of over 50 million users, and surprisingly this did not violate Facebook’s policies. What is even more concerning is that once the data left their servers, they had ZERO control over how it was used.

With this news, a movement on social media has started to #DeleteFacebook. We wanted to take a look at what was being said by users of this hashtag including prominent names like Justin Sun of TRON, TechCrunch, and others.
