Stephen King has quit Facebook after voicing concerns about false information and privacy.

“I’m quitting Facebook,” the author said on Twitter Friday. “Not comfortable with the flood of false information that’s allowed in its political advertising, nor am I confident in its ability to protect its users’ privacy. Follow me (and Molly, aka The Thing of Evil) on Twitter, if you like.”

His Facebook profile has since been deleted.

I have to admit that this almost convinced me to delete my Facebook account as well.

I absolutely despise the fact that Facebook helped Trump win in 2016, and appears to be ready to do the same in 2020.

Really the only thing stopping me from deleting my account is that I use it to reach people about IM, and it keeps me in contact with my daughter and members of my family that are not good about making a phone call. 

But I am seriously considering it yet again. 

Oh, and fuck Mark Zuckerberg!
