The revelations about the Facebook'sCambridge Analytica scandal have led to 10% slip in Facebook's stock, leaving the online social media and social networking service company users agitated about the privacy violation.After both co-founders made billions by cutting a deal with Zuckerberg's Facebook in 2014, Acton left the company in September a year ago while Jan Koum continues to lead the charge.
