WhatsApp co-founder tells everyone to delete Facebook Now, #DeleteFacebook

Published

Brian Acton, who now funds rival messaging app, joins #deletefacebook train

The “Delete Facebook” train just got another passenger. WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton, who left Facebook last year was straightforward about his position on the social media network when he took to Twitter and simply said, “It is time. #deletefacebook.”

In 2014, Facebook bought WhatsApp for $16 billion, making its co-founders — Jan Koum and Brian Acton — very wealthy men. Koum continues to lead the company, but Acton quit earlier this year to start his own foundation. And he isn’t done merely with WhatsApp — in a post on Twitter today, Acton told his followers to delete Facebook.

“It is time,” Acton wrote, adding the hashtag #deletefacebook. Acton, who is worth $6.5 billion, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. WhatsApp declined to comment.

It was unclear whether Acton’s feelings about Facebook extend to his own app. But last month, Acton invested $50 million into Signal, an independent alternative to WhatsApp.

The tweet came after a bruising five-day period for Facebook that has seen regulators swarm and its stock price plunge following concerns over data privacy in the wake of revelations about Cambridge Analytica’s misuse of user data.

instagram verification

In its bid to fight fake news and keep bad actors away from the platform, photo-messaging app Instagram has announced a few measures that can help its one billion users identify the authenticity of accounts with a large following.The Facebook-owned platform announced that it would roll out an “About This Account” tool to provide more information, including location, about accounts that reach a large audience. Moreover, Instagram is now also allowing more people to request the blue verified badge which is an important way for users to know that the account they are interacting with is the authentic presence of a notable public figure, celebrity, global brand or entity. “Today we are enabling a new way for accounts that reach large audiences and meet our criteria to request verification through a form within the Instagram app,” Mike Krieger, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Instagram, wrote in a blog post on Tuesday. “To be verified, an account must comply with Instagram’s Terms of Service and Community Guidelines. We will review verification requests to confirm the authenticity, uniqueness, completeness and notability of each account,” Krieger added.

To learn more about an account, one can also use the “About This Account” tool. To use this feature, one needs to go to their Profile, tap the menu and then select “About This Account.” There, users will see the date the account joined Instagram, the country where the account is located, accounts with shared followers, any user name changes in the last year and any ads the account is currently running.”In September, people who have accounts that reach large audiences can review the information about their accounts that will soon be publicly available. After that, the “About This Account” tool will be available to the global community,” Krieger said. In addition to these features, Instagram also announced an improved form of two-factor authentication that aims to make it easier and safer for users to securely log into Instagram.”You will soon be able to use third-party authenticator apps to log into your Instagram account,” Krieger said.

To use a third-party app to log into your Instagram account, go to your profile, tap the menu icon, select “Settings” at the bottom and then choose “Two-Factor Authentication” and select “Authentication App” as your preferred form of authentication. Users need to install an authentication app (if they have not already) and return to Instagram to continue setting up their two-factor authentication.”Support for third-party authenticator apps has begun to roll out and will be available to the global community in the coming weeks,” Krieger said.

Right-click on the file or folder that you want to transfer and select “Copy.” Left-click and drag the mouse to select multiple files, then right-click and select “Copy.”

Return to the DataTraveler window. Right-click an empty area and select “Paste.” Wait for the files to finish transferring. Once the process is finished, click on the “Safely Remove Hardware” icon in your desktop taskbar and select your Kingston Data Traveler.
