Author Stephen King is quitting Facebook according to a tweet he put out on Twitter today.
Concerned with what he called the “flood of false information that’s allowed in its political advertising” and the social media platform’s ability to “protect its users’ privacy”, King announced the move and then encouraged fans to follow him on Twitter instead.
So, what will the impact of this announcement be on Facebook? That remains to be seen, but according to the BBC, King is not the first celebrity to leave the site. Mark Hammill, Cher, Steve Wozniak and Will Ferrell have already ditched Facebook as has Jim Carey.
Will this latest departure have any effect on users or, indeed, have any impact on how Facebook carries out its business? We shall see.
