The people who have turned on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, this may be the biggest yet. Brian Acton, co-founder of the internationally popular WhatsApp messaging service, sent out a tweet from his unverified Twitter account late Tuesday telling people "It is time. #deletefacebook." Earlier in the day, the #DeleteFacebook hashtag trended in the wake of accounts that Facebook user information landed in political advertisers' hands without the consent of users.
Acton's tweet is a notable move considering he sold WhatsApp to Facebook for $19 billion in 2014 and worked there until late last year. WhatsApp was founded in 2009.
Facebook has come under increasing fire for mishandling its user data. A series of reports in The New York Times, Observer and UK's Channel 4 said University of Cambridge lecturer Aleksandr Kogan and a political data analytics firm called Cambridge Analytica worked together to leak information on more than 50 million user profiles from Facebook. Facebook learned of the effort in2015, but didn't discuss it publicly until last Friday. Both Acton and Facebook declined to comment.
Being a man with a wealth of experience however, we trust that Mark will get to the bottom of this. To our Facebooker; Do you want to delete your account?

The U.S. Ambassador to in Ghana, Robert P. Jackson has denied the claim that its government has entered into any agreement to establish a military base in Ghana.
In a statement Tuesday, the US Embassy said there is an agreement known as Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) between both countries dating back to 1998.
But the 20-year-old deal does not cover the “current range and volume of bilateral exercise and assistance,” it said.
Investigations have intercepted a document which revealed Cabinet has approved an agreement to allow the US military an unrestricted access to a host of Ghanaian facilities and wide-ranging tax exemptions.
The deal will permit the U.S. military to use Ghana as a base for staging and deploying forces.
But Defense Minister, Dominic Nitiwul, has denied reports that the agreement covers the establishment of a military base.
“The United States of America is not establishing a military base in Ghana, at all…it is not true and they do not intend to do that, not at all.”
Dominic Nitiwul, Defense Minister said the US military has only asked to make use of some facilities at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) and the Tema Port to keep their cargo and other materials they may use during their stay in the country.
He was clear, a portion of the agreement reported in the media is a blatant misrepresentation and was engineered to cause panic among the citizenry.
Reacting to the report, the US Embassy in Ghana said there is only a planned security exercise between militaries of the two countries that will require some access to certain facilities.
But there is no such plan to establish a permanent military base or bases in Ghana, the Embassy said.
“This year, the US is investing over $20 million in training and equipment for the Ghanaian armed forces. Ghana is also once again preparing to train US forces – as it did in 2017,” it said.
Heritage is a tradition, inheritance, property a practice or set of values that is passed down from preceding generation through families or inherited through institutional memory.
When it comes to heritage, I believe Ghanaians should be more proud because there is a lot we can boast of.
Heritage of Ghana right away from the time of migration to date has been our culture, artefact, craft and after the independence of Ghana; National Symbols.
Culture is the intellectual, practice, moral and dynamisms of a group of people in a given society over a period of time at a given place. Ghana being a given place from our ancestors with ten administrative regions and five major ethnic groups, we are still proud to say we have rich Ghanaian Festivals, Food, Chieftaincy, Puberty, Language, Dances, Pouring of Libation, Drums, Funeral Ceremonies, Birth rites, Naming ceremonies, and Marriage rites as our unique Culture and Customs.
Inherited national symbols are our National Anthem, Pledge, Flag, Coat of Arms among others that aids to identify us a one people with a common destiny from a blessed land like Ghana. The Ghanaian national symbols tell about the country’s history besides its rich tradition and culture.
Remembering the independence of Ghana 6th March every year since 1957, has made it possible for the management of Gruope Nduom to declare the whole of March as on Heritage Month.
How well does the current generation of Ghana exhibit their patriotism, love, loyalty and dogma for Ghana our motherland? Is it through daylight robbery, the corruption canker, growth of false pastors, public display of fetish activities, emergence of homosexuality, indecent exposure, manslaughter, murder, nudity, improper dressing, and abuse of social media to mention but few?
If we really understood the 5th to 8th line of the 2ND Stanza of our National Anthem, we won’t be engulfed in such anti-country acts.
‘‘With our gifts of mind and strength of arm,
Whether night or day, in the midst of storm,
In every need whate'er the call may be,
To serve thee, Ghana, now and evermore.’’
We have a generation that has no respect for the elderly and authority, some uniform men and women have no integrity so they openly take bribe, reciting the National Pledge and singing of the National Anthem is seen as platitude, speaking of native language is perceived barbaric, circulation of falsehood about high profile personalities is the norm of the day, vulgarity is the new order, stealing from national pulse is a normal routine.
Are these the heritage we inherited from our ancestors who led us to this promise land or the forbearers who toiled to birth way for independence? Your answer is certainly NO.
Our month of heritage which is March should aid us to reflect on our actions, inactions and persona to take the right decisions as citizenry. Let’s embrace our rich culture, traditions and practices so it affects our doings positively.
Our dressing this month if nothing at all , should depict Ghanaian or African and try to prepare more Ghanaian dishes.
Let’s raise high the flag of Ghana and one with Africa advance.
Long Live Our Rich Heritage
God bless our homeland Ghana.

CAMPUS 360 Live officially launched.
The very unbeatable Campus TV morning show that is sworn to hit the screens was seen launched officially yesterday at the Legon hall of the University of Ghana.
This morning show has different a trend as compared to other morning shows we have on other platforms. The dynamism from the anchors to other presenters on the show is laudable.
At the official launch of the show, the opening was done by Janet and JKD the anchors of the show with a mouth watering introduction which was followed with the newspaper review segment having Stephanie (Campus TV Rep from UG) and the controversial Pepsival joining them.
We had Antoinette Kwao and Stephaine doing the Health segment for which they spoke on cervical cancer - This type of cancer of the cervix of the uterus which can afflict mammals including humans. A topic that is undoubtedly informative and educative topic.
Janet took our viewers through makeup tips with an expert in makeup who had one of the females from the Legon hall being used for tutorials.
The entertainment segment was gracefully done with Thomas, P-Mens, Reginald and JKD in a heartful manner. They spoke the Ebony’s burial and its related issues, discussed about sexual relations on our campuses and The Samsung S9 and S9+ Phone. This segment was the zenith of the show.
The denouement of the show had Janet and JKD ending the show with a pop of Champaign with Campus TV Reps from UG and GIJ and the entire crew of the morning show signifying the CAMPUS 360 LIVE morning show duly launched.
The energy, passion, gel and unrigid nature of the show anchors and presenters is a clear indication that, this morning show is taking a new form of which our breed of youngest can relate with. A show that is giving every youth out there a reason to watch due to its flexibility.
This morning show will be aired on Campus TV everyday from 7am to 10am with live streaming on Facebook @campustvgh
Ameyaw Kissi Debrah, popularly known as Ameyaw Debrah, is a Ghanaian celebrity blogger, freelance journalist, and reporter.
The 37-year old blogger has gotten married to his sweetheart Darkoa last Saturday. He shared some photos from the wedding on social media and he also shared their love story.
‘‘Love at 35, daddy at 36, hubby at 37
The last 3 years of my life have been exciting because I allowed myself to escape the comfort of hiding at home and my work to find love. It came when I wasn’t expecting it, but at a time that I needed it. I was getting tired of doing the same thing over and over again; for although I loved it, it sometimes became lonely. And although I love the tranquillity and peace in loneliness, turning 35 was a good milestone to reflect over my life.
Darkoa was amongst the 35 family and friends I had selected to celebrate my 35th birthday with me over a dinner.
She was visiting Ghana for the first time since I started talking to her. The first memory I have of her was in May 2016 when I was in France, attending the Cannes film festival.
She had called, (through WhatsApp I think) to enquire about the services of an MC for a wedding. I told her I don’t do such but due to my work I could suggest someone for her. Few days later she called again to thank me although they couldn’t use the person I has suggested for the MC Job. She drew a likeness for me and I her. And for some reasons although I typically hate chatting on WhatsApp with people I don’t know in real life, I became fond of her and gave her a lot more time than I give others.
We became buddies and as the universe would have it, she was meant to come to Ghana in the month of my birthday. She surprised me with some pre-birthday gifts when she arrived in town. And when my birthday was due, I invited her to join my family and friends for dinner. And offer she refused initially but later called to accept. The biggest dinner happened and there were a few more dinners later. And before she left Ghana, it was clear that we had some sparks.
So we continued exploring our friendship farther apart. But day in day out, we drew closer despite the distance. We would talk at odd hours due to the time difference about important and not so important stuff.’’
