This move comes after a rough week for the social media giant in the wake of revelations about the alleged misuse of Facebook user data by data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica that worked on the United States President Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign.
Definitely a weird tweet from Acton-let's see what he has to say next about his tweet, and whether it was actually him sending the message or a "hacker". Acton stayed on with Facebook until 2017, but has since invested $50 million in Signal, a messaging app that is a direct competitor of Facebook's messaging apps. WhatsApp co-founder, Jan Koum, continues to run the company and sits on Facebook's board.
This points to a major loophole in Facebook's API, which allows third-party developers to collect data not just from the users of the Facebook app, but also from that user's friends network on the social media platform. The people who created the quiz passed the data to Cambridge Analytica, which is in breach of Facebook's policy. Facebook knew about the data leak back in 2015, but the public only learned after reports in the New York Times and Observer last weekend.

Beyonce also received a heartwarming pre-recorded video message from Michelle Obama who saluted her for being an inspiration to young women.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has yet to comment about on the current Cambridge Analytica scandal.
Facebook communications statement has been issued which says, "The claim that this is a data breach is completely false".
As pointed out by the report, Acton is not the first "former Facebook executive" to express concern, displeasure or discomfort about the company after leaving the place.
