Zukerberg says If Facebook Users delete Accounts, their data is Deleted




9% of Facebook users have deleted their accounts according to survey;



While Facebook has endured a number of scandals over the past few years the fallout and controversy stemming from the Cambridge Analytica saga undoubtedly represents the biggest public relations challenge 
the social networking giant has ever faced Speaking to the gravity of the 
situation Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg traveled down(1 )to Capitol Hill this week where he fielded pointed questions (2)from lawmakers about data privacy and range of other issues With the outrage surrounding Facebook's privacy policies reaching fever pitch over the past few weeks there has been something of an underground movement calling for users to delete their Facebook account altogether .To this point you may have seen the Delete Facebook hashtag pop upon any number of social media platforms in recent weeks including ,ironically enough on
 Facebook itself 

While Zuckerberg lastweek said that the company (1)hasn't seen meaningful drop off in cumulative users new survey from Creative Strategies claims that 9% of Americans may have deleted their accountsThe report (via TechPinions ) reads in part Privacy matters to ourpanelists Thirty-six percent said they are very concerned about it and another 41% saying they are somewhat concerned Their behavior on Facebook has somewhat 
changed dueto their privacy concerns .Seventeen percent deleted their Facebook app from their phone 11%deleted from other devices and 9% deleted their account altogether .These numbers might not worry Facebook too much but there are less drastic steps users are taking that should be worrying as they directly impact Facebook's business model The 9% figure seems impossibly high as it would mean that of Facebook's estimated 214 million users in the United States 19.2 million deleted their account over the past few weeks aloneTruth be told we'll probably have to wait until Facebook's for the coming earnings report in order to get more accurate gauge as to how the ongoing controversy enveloping the company has impacted its 
user base
