Tesla, SpaceX, and SolarCity quit Facebook: Here are the data trails they leave behind
Today, Elon Musk walked out on Facebook. He took with him his corporate family, too: electric vehicle pioneer Tesla Motors ($NASDAQ:TSLA), space-going maverick SpaceX ($SPACEX), and futurist solar panel subsidiary SolarCity ($NASDAQ:SCTY).
As of now, all of these companies' accounts have been deleted.
We've been tracking their Facebook accounts - likes, conversations, check-ins - since mid-2015. As a send-off, we present to you some of the rocket-like social trajectories they leave behind.
Note: these exits abandon more than 5,600,000 likes and millions upon millions of conversations.
Tesla Likes Over Time
SpaceX Facebook Likes Over Time
Solar City Likes Over Time
And millions of conversations about the future of humanity and a future beyond earth.
