Playboy joins #DeleteFacebook

Playboy followed in the footsteps of Tesla and Space X by withdrawing from Facebook in the face of growing concern over poor management of the users' data on the platform, according to the company.
Playboy Enterprises, the segment of the company that managed the social networks, has deactivated the Facebook profiles that had approximately 25 million fans, in addition to the difficulty they have had for years to express their "values" on Facebook, due to The policy of the platform to prohibit nudity, according to the firm.

"There are more than 25 million followers that interact with Playboy through our various Facebook pages and we do not want to be accomplices in exposing them to the practices that have been reported," the company said in a statement.

In addition, the note says that "Playboy always defended personal freedom and celebration of sex" and that this action is "one step further in the fight in progress."

The American giant has a very specific policy on nudes, in which he forbids the images of people showing naked genitals or buttocks. In 2015, Playboy announced that it would eliminate the publication of full nude photographs in order to obtain a greater number of followers, but the decision was revoked by Hefner in 2017.

Playboy follows the example of other users and companies that have joined the wide #DeleteFacebook movement after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, recently sprinkled by Elon Musk's decision to remove the Tesla and SpaceX pages from the Zuckerberg platform.

On the other hand, the three companies are still active on Instagram, a social network owned by Facebook.
