United Sketches removes its “Official” and “Verified” page from Facebook

The Cambridge Analytica story and its following consequences is clearly showing that Facebook social network has been abusing its users trust to make profit and to influence the democratic process. That’s why United Sketches removes its official page from Facebook and invite all NGOs, Institutions, Museums and all other cultural engaged organizations to remove their official pages as well. Facebook shouldn’t be able to use the values and credits of engaged organizations anymore. Kianoush Ramezani Founder & President United Sketches International
