Facebook is facing a huge criticism for the Cambridge Analytica data scandal and things are getting worse only. After the news hit the mainstream the users including some popular tech leaders started leaving the platform. Now, Google Trends has traced the maximum number for ‘delete facebook’ search in past 5 years.

Google trends, the tool from the search engine that helps in exploring the popular searches across the US, shared the disappointing result for Facebook. This week the tool recorded maximum search for ‘delete facebook’ from the US-based users. After people get to know about the compromise that Facebook made with the data of 50 million users #deletefacebook campaign has started by the angry users.

According to Google Adwords reports, the delete facebook phrase was searched between 100,000 to 1 million times in February by the users. This means a large number of people are searching for the delete facebook option and this isn't good for the social media platform. The option to delete facebook profile lies somewhere deep in the settings and that’s what makes people search the web for it.  

Facebook has lost almost $75 billion since the platform’s data scandal has been revealed last week. Joining the #delefacebook campaign, WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton also tweeted that ‘it is time to delete facebook’. With the time more and more popular personalities are criticizing the Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg for breaking users’ trust. Jim Carrey, the popular actor also posted Mark Zurg's painting with his comments to symbolize the disappointment of users who trusted him.

Moreover, SpaceX and Tesla owner Elon Musk replied to Acton’s Tweet by saying ‘What’s Facebook’. In the same tweet-chain, another user asked Elon Musk to delete the SpaceX account to which Elon Musk replied that “I Will”. A few hours later Musk removed the SpaceX and Tesla Facebook pages, both the pages had over 2 million followers.
