In 2014, Facebook bought WhatsApp for $16 billion, creating its co-founders — Jan Koum and Brian Acton — rich men.
Koum continues to steer the corporate, however Acton quit earlier this year to start out his own foundation. And he isn’t done just with WhatsApp — during a post on Twitter this day, Acton told his followers to delete Facebook.
It is time. #deletefacebook

“It is time,” Acton wrote, adding the hashtag #deletefacebook. Acton, who is value $6.5 billion, failed to directly answer an invitation for comment. WhatsApp declined to comment.
