id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body”> Mark Hamill thinks Facebook has gone to the dark side.

Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/ Getty Images Star Wars’ Mark Hamill tweeted Sunday night that he’s deleted his Facebook account. In the post, Hamill said he’s disappointed that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg values profit over truthfulness. Hamill linked to an article from The New York Times that said the social media site has no plans to adjust its political policies. 

Political campaigns can reportedly use Facebook to direct advertisements to certain sections of the electorate, but the site won’t police the integrity of the messages. 

Ahead of Hamill’s tweet, Facebook posted a blog about transparency and control in political ads. Though some changes let users have a bit more control over the ads they see, it’s still possible for 우리카지노추천 politicians to lie in those ads, and this is allowed by the social media site. Prior to Hamill’s tweet, 250 Facebook employees publicly criticized the social media site’s policy as well. 

Facebook didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

So disappointed that #MarkZuckerberg values profit more than truthfulness that I’ve decided to delete my @Facebook account. I know this is a big “Who Cares?” for the world at large, but I’ll sleep better at night. #PatriotismOverProfits 🇲🇾>💰 website
