Some 10,000 Dutch
people have closed their Facebook accounts following a call to action by
television show host Arjen Lubach, who presents the Zondag met Lubach program. He had urged viewers
to take part in a mass closure event on Wednesday evening in response to
the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Lubach said that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is unlikely to be
affected by the closures. "That does not matter," he said. "Discussion
has started and that is what this is about. And I do appreciate the fact
so many people were prepared to join in."
