Facebook has not had the best week after that I went out into the light all the scandal of the Cambridge Analytica, and despite the fact that its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg has offered an apology and possible solutions to the case the people are not happy with what is happening and the movement #DeleteFacebook has taken a lot of strength in the last few days.
And after that Brian Acton, cofounder of WhatsApp, wrote on her Twitter account that she joined the movement #DeleteFacebook, Elon Musk answered with the grace that characterizes him asking the question, what is Facebook?, and is that the employer normally uses Twitter to share information about their projects and businesses.

However, Elon Musk has also joined the movement #DeleteFacebook and has removed his profile from the social network, but it has also made the pages of Tesla and SpaceX, two of their companies, and projects more important and popular, which had more than 5 million followers on Facebook.
This could be seen as a risky move by Elon Musk, that a company loses such an impact on social networks is not exactly good, however, this type of decisions are common in the life of the co-founder of PayPal and founder of Tesla, The Boring Company and Space X.
With this decision, Musk noted his disagreement with the case of Cambridge Analytica and the late response of your CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg.
The problem for Facebook is that if companies the size of Tesla or SpaceX deleted their official profiles on the social network, more companies could follow the same path, and after that, the users could also be encouraged to do the same, because as I mentioned above, the movement #DeleteFacebook has taken a lot of strength in the last few days.
