Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg? Musk Deletes SpaceX Page From Social Media Giant #SpaceX #Facebook

Things have been rough for Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook with the fall-out from the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Now the social media giant may have met its worst enemy yet – the hyperactive genius hell-bent on getting to Mars and build a colony there, Elon Musk.

Facebook has been under intense fire following revelations that Cambridge Analytica harvested data from millions of people’s profiles to sell to the highest bidder. These bidders are alleged to include Barack Obama, members of Trump’s campaign team and those seeking to make Brexit a reality.

Spacefaring billionaire Musk was seemingly none too impressed with the news and announced on Twitter that he was taking down SpaceX’s Facebook profile.

One has to wonder, did Elon Musk just start a billionaire’s feud between he and the mercurial Mark Zuckerberg?

He did, however, claim he wasn’t aware that the company even had a Facebook page to begin with.

Known for keeping his word, Musk said he would delete it, and indeed it was deleted.

What had been a very popular page with 2.6 million likes was now nothing but a memory.

Whatever it is the employees of SpaceX’s social media team feel about their boss’ sudden decision to delete the page without warning remains to be seen.

Odds are, they’ll be disappointed with Facebook viewers not being able to see their handiwork, but in the end will get back to business as usual.

So there you have it. Will Facebook go the way of MySpace and become a lower-tier social media, barely even thought of because of being enveloped in one scandal too many?

Only time will tell.
