The Tesla and SpaceX Facebook pages have vanished, minutes after Elon Musk – the CEO of both companies – said that he had never seen the SpaceX Facebook profile and planned to delete it.
The Tesla和SpaceX 两家公司的CEO埃隆·马斯克声称他从未见过Space X公司在Facebook上的主页同时正打算删除特斯拉主页,几分钟后,他们在Facebook上面的主页消失了。

It started when Musk replied to a tweet earlier in the week from WhatsApp cofounder Brian Acton, when he tweeted "It is time. #deletefacebook." Facebook bought WhatsApp for US$19 billion in 2014, making Acton a billionaire.
这件事始于本周早些时候,马斯克回复WhatAPP的合伙人Brian Acton的推文。当时Brian Acton写到“是时候删除Facebook了。” 而在2014年,Facebook用190亿美元买下WhatApp,让Acton一下子成了亿万富翁。

On Friday morning, Musk answered Acton's tweet by saying "What's Facebook?"

"Delete SpaceX page on Facebook if you're the man?" a fan chimed in. 

"I didn't realise there was one. Will do," Musk replied. 

In subsequent tweets, Musk reiterated that the SpaceX page "will be gone soon" and that he "literally never seen it even once." He also said that Facebook's influence had started to affect Instagram, the social network's photo-sharing app. 

Less than 30 minutes after that tweet, the official Facebook page for SpaceX, along with that of Tesla, vanished. Musk's negative feelings toward Facebook may be related to a 2016 dispute where Zuckerberg blamed SpaceX for a failed launch that destroyed a Facebook satellite.

Musk is the latest notable tech entrepreneur to wade into the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal, which centres on the British data company Cambridge Analytica, which has ties to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. It improperly obtained information from as many as 50 million Facebook profiles.

The outrage forced Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to make a formal apology and announce plans for new tools that help users protect their data. SpaceX's Facebook page had 2.6 million likes before it was deleted. SpaceX still has a profile on Facebook-owned Instagram.
