Why Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is deleting his Facebook account

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says he's left Facebook amid personal security concerns as fallout from massive Cambridge Analytica data breach continues

Wozniak told the paper that he would rather pay to use Facebook than have his personal information exploited for advertising.

Current Apple CEO Tim Cook has also publicly criticized Facebook, prompting Zuckerberg to denounce Cook's comments as "extremely glib". "Apple makes its money off of good products, not off of you".

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says he isn't sure Facebook can fix its privacy issues and he expects it will be decades before it changes its policies. Apple has more secure ways to share things about yourself.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is bidding farewell to Facebook in reaction to its data privacy scandal. "It has given me less positives and extra negatives", Wozniak claimed this week in a Facebook post.

Geoffrey Rush Reportedly Suffering Greatly Following Defamation Suit Against Sexual Allegations
He rarely left home in the three months after the articles and "has been virtually housebound", his lawyer said. For whatever reason, Rush is fighting the cross-claim and intends to focus his ire on the newspaper.

"To start, some members of Congress said they want Zuckerberg at the hearings to offer specifics about Cambridge Analytica - and Facebook's privacy practices writ large - even beyond the information the company has shared in recent weeks".

"I wouldn't be in the situation", said Cook, who previously called for regulations on Facebook. The CEO, who is scheduled to present his case before the congressional committees in Washington, said that Facebook is among the companies that works hard to charge less and provide a free service to everyone.

Despite a smattering of high-profile defections, most Wall Street analysts don't expect a significant dent in Facebook's monthly user base of 2.2 billion worldwide. According to Wozniak, such firms use the widescale data collection operations to ace ad targeting. After Facebook confirmed that Cambridge Analytica has used data that had been collected from 50 million users without their consent.

Days later, Elon Musk had the Tesla and SpaceX pages removed from Facebook. The company is said to have retained private data from 87 million Facebook users despite having assured Facebook that the data was deleted. The social media giant admitted that data consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica accessed personal data of users globally through an app-based game.
