WhatsApp co-founder, Brian Acton, has joined the #DeleteFacebook campaign on social media.

Acton, who made a fortune selling WhatsApp to Facebook for $16 billion, left the instant messaging app this year to start his own foundation.

He wrote on Twitter:  "It is time. #deletefacebook"

The hashtag started trending after it was revealed by Facebook that data of over 50 million users was misused in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.

The company’s value had dropped $37 billion since the reveal.

According to The Verge report, Acton, just last month, invested $50 million into signal, another instant messaging app.
