Facebook Punts Out Help Center Tool To Help You Check If Your Data Leaked So That You Won’t #DeleteFacebook

On the day that Mark Zuckerberg goes to Washington to get beaten to a pulp by Congress, Facebook has launched a new section of its Help Center focusing on user data breaches following the Cambridge Analytica scandal that’s been ongoing for the past few weeks. The updated Help Center tool allows you to check to see if any of your Facebook data was shared with Cambridge Analytica. Among other things, it will tell you whether or not you or any of your friends ever logged into “This Is Your Digital Life,” a quiz app that Cambridge Analytica used to steal information and tailor political messages towards Facebook users.

In my opinion, this is something. But not enough for some to stop them from joining the #DeleteFacebook camp. Why? Facebook put the burden of discovering information to protect users on the user. It’s just another reason that you should #DeleteFacebook today.
