#DeleteFacebook Trending On Twitter As Users Exit
The hashtag #DeleteFacebook is trending on Twitter, after it was revealed that the social network somewhat unwittingly shared data for as many as 50 million people with Cambridge Analytics, a firm that provided services to the Trump election campaign.
The time has come for all good music marketers to redouble their efforts to build an email list, as millions of Facebook users express displeasure with online protests and account deletions over the social media platform's data policies and leaks.
#DeleteFacebook is trending on Twitter and multiple news outlets claim that users are deleting their accounts in droves. This alone likely does not mean a MySpace-like end for Facebook, but some respected tech sites, multiple celebrities and a lot of regular users are rushing for the exit. BusinessInsider is even linking to instructions.
Facebook stock also fell 4% on Monday, and was down another 2.9% in morning trading on Tuesday.
We traded a market square for the Internet, but all of the closed-mindedness and cynicism came with it.

If you don't pay for the product you ARE the product. Facebook sells all of your information to the highest and lowest bidders. Why sell yourself so cheaply? #deleteFacebook
