Following the recent allegations about Facebook's misuse of data - particularly with the Cambridge Analytica scandal rocking the social network and resulting in founder Mark Zuckerberg taking an 'apology tour' around the media - there has been increased discussion about users deleting the social network all together.
Most users get Facebook when they are 10 years old, although officially the minimum age that a user can have an account on the platform is 13 years old. For some users, particularly young adults, the platform holds memories and data about their entire teenage-hood.
However, some users are suggesting the Facebook's obvious misuse of data is starting to tip them over the edge, with some going as far as deleting their accounts on the service. However, other users are less surprised about the revelations.
In the latest episode of 10 Minutes More (with Kup & Gurr), George Kup and Callum Gurr invite you to share your opinion on whether you will be deleting your Facebook account, following the live vote on TeenScope.

Being a fan girl is absolutely okay.
I can say I’ve been in the fan girl phase (what phase?!) for far too long but am I really ever going to leave it? Probably not.
As an avid fan of the Jonas Brothers, One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer and McFly, I don’t know what it’s like to not like a boy band or you know... a band made of guys (5SOS and McFly don’t like to be called a boy band).
They say that at a certain age you should just stop caring for them but why? We grow with them. I’m the same age as 3/5 of these bands (whilst the other two are actually older) yet we get told at one point to just get over it. Not gonna happen with me folks! I love my bands, and you should continue to love yours!
Supporting them is much more than just being a fan girl. You support their music, go to their shows, buy merch if you’d like but you don’t necessarily post about them 24/7 but you’re still a fan. “Fan girl” is just a term we come up with and people make it so deep like you’re some crazed obsessed fan and make fun of you for it. What’s the difference between us loving our bands and grown men cheering on football players? Absolutely nothing in my opinion.
No matter your age, keep doing you! Love your bands, get excited about their music! Go see them in concert! It’s worth it if it makes YOU happy!

There are over 11 million people in the UK living with long-term illness, impairment or disability – the most commonly-reported impairments are those that affect mobility, lifting or carrying.
When we look at the world, this number balloons with over 1 billion people, or 15% of the world’s population, experiencing some form of disability.
Over the past few years, many developed countries (including the UK and the USA) have implemented laws and policies to ensure that better provisions are in place to support those living with disabilities in day-to-day life. This includes laws preventing discrimination against disability and making sure that public places have suitable disabled access.
In the latest episode of 10 Minutes More (with Kup & Gurr), George Kup and Callum Gurr invite you to share your opinion on whether you think disabled people are treated equally in modern society, following the live vote on TeenScope.
