Elon Musk apparently wasn’t aware that his company SpaceX had a Facebook page. The SpaceX and Tesla CEO has responded to a comment on Twitter calling for him to take down the SpaceX, Tesla and Elon Musk official pages in support of the #deletefacebook movement by first acknowledging he didn’t know one existed, and then following up with promises that he would indeed take them down.

He’s done just that, as the SpaceX Facebook page is now gone, after having been live earlier today.

Prior to their deletion, both the SpaceX and Tesla pages had over 2.6 million Likes and Follows, and super high engagement rates. You have to wonder whether Musk’s social media management employees cried a little when these went down.

:rolleyes: This whole thing seems kinda dumb. Was anyone really surprised that their data was being abused when they agreed to share friend lists with stupid facebook quizzes?

It's far more than that. People are stupid. They didn't realize just how much was shared.

In slightly related area, the following is one example of why Facebook keeps pushing their other apps on you. Be sure you read most of the twitter thread to see just how far Facebook goes to scavenge your data:

Their messenger app requires access to pretty much your entire device, photos, microphone, camera, etc. it’s horse shit.

Likewise, people are stupid if they think Facebook is the only ones doing that. You want access to part of my phone? Justify it. You can't? I don't need the app that badly.
