An anonymous reader quotes a report from BetaNews: A survey conducted in the wake of the #DeleteFacebook campaign that followed revelations about the data breach and the logging of Android users' calls and texts, found that a surprising number of tech workers were ready to delete their Facebook accounts. 31 percent backed the #DeleteFacebook campaign, including 50 percent of Microsoft workers, and 38 percent of Google workers. The survey -- conducted using the anonymous app Blind -- found that nearly a third of those questioned were planning to delete their Facebook accounts. In all, over 2,600 people were surveyed between March 20, 2018 and March 24, 2018, so it neatly took in the peak of the controversy. Broken down by company, the numbers make for interesting reading: -50 percent of Microsoft employees said they will delete Facebook. -46 percent of Snapchat employees said they would delete Facebook. -40 percent of Uber employees said they would delete Facebook. -38 percent of Google employees said they would delete Facebook. -34 percent of Amazon employees said they would delete Facebook. -2 percent of Facebook employees said they would delete Facebook.
