Late Tuesday, Playboy issued a press release announcing its withdrawal for Facebook. Playboy had multiple accounts on the social media platform that held a total of about 25 million fans. Playboy becomes the latest company to join the #DeleteFacebook movement after the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
”The recent news about Facebook’s alleged mismanagement of users’ data has solidified our decision to suspend our activity on the platform at this time,” reads the statement. “There are more than 25 million fans who engage with Playboy via our various Facebook pages, and we do not want to be complicit in exposing them to the reported practices.”
However, even though Playboy pulled their brand from Facebook, they are still activive on Instagram. Which is worth noting that Facebook actually owns Instagram.
