Elon Musk, after replying to Acton with a snarky "What's Facebook?" tweet, was asked to delete the Facebook pages of SpaceX and Tesla by other Twitter users.

Zuckerberg fired back, calling the statement "extremely glib" and explaining that ads are a way to offer its service for free so it doesn't only serve "rich people".

He also said in the interview with Vox that an advertising-supported business model is the only way a company such as Facebook can connect people around the world regardless of their ability to pay.

In the wake of the Cambridge Analytica controversy, the #DeleteFacebook movement grows by the day.

On a similar note, Facebook removes one more data analytics company after the local media finds it was employing tactics same as Cambridge Analytica. In fact, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg confirmed as much by stating that users would need to pay to avoid having their data used for advertising.
