No one actually deleted Facebook

For those who weren't convinced Facebook knew everything about its users, the Cambridge Analytica scandal sure cleared things up.

In the aftermath, the internet screamed for users to #DeleteFacebook and protect their privacy, but a Reuters/Ipsos poll shows no one really did. Since Facebook's privacy breach was revealed, only 14 percent of U.S. adults changed their social media credentials. Just 22 percent started using a private browsing window, and only 4 percent have switched to using encrypted communication apps like WhatsApp.

Meanwhile, Facebook is still as popular as ever, Reuters reported. More than half of adults still use Facebook multiple times a day. Of those who don't, only 16 percent say it's because they're concerned about privacy.
