New Delhi: Superstar Aamir Khan, unlike his colleague Farhan Akhtar, did not delete his Facebook account but rather went live. On Tuesday morning, Farhan Akhtar announced via a tweet that he is deleting his Facebook account without stating a reason. It is being assumed that he deleted his account in the wake of the hashtag '#DeleteFacebook' movement, which has been trending for a while now. (But more on that later). Aamir used his Facebook to enlighten the viewers about water conversation and spoke about Paani Foundation, which is working to resolve water conversation issues in the drought-affected areas of Maharashtra. He was speaking from Katgun village in Maharashtra, the birthplace of Mahtama Jyotirao Phule. Paani Foundation has been formed by Aamir Khan and wife Kiran Rao.

The #DeleteFacebook Movement
The #DeleteFacebook movement started after reports stated that Facebook secretly shared the personal information of over 50 million users, without their consent. This prompted several users to delete their accounts. Elon Musk, boss of Tesla and SpaceX, deleted the Facebook accounts of both his companies. Meanwhile, Farhan Akhtar's 'FarhanAkhtarLive' page, which he uses to update about his concerts and events, is still active.
