Steve said the reason he has opted out of Facebook is the manner in which the social media site tends to use the personal info of its users to maximize its ad potential.

"Apple makes money off of good products, not off of you", he said. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is in Washington as the week begins, and will testify in Congress tomorrow about the data crisis.

But now, many users are demanding that Facebook stop doing the thing that earns the company billions of dollars each year.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is bidding farewell to Facebook in reaction to its data privacy scandal.

Wozniak deactivated his Facebook account on Sunday, the report said, after posting a message that the social network has brought him "more negatives than positives".

He's become a central player in the Hammers' first-team and caught the eye on his Ireland senior debut against Turkey last month. Chelsea had 21 chances to West Ham's four but in truth this was a poor advertisement for top flight football.


After going into this little tirade, Wozniak confessed that he'd much rather have Facebook being a paid service rather than something freely accessible for everyone with an internet connection. Further, Cook backed his candid response with Apple's privacy policies, which requires the company to review apps if they are in line with the privacy standards that Apple has set in place. "I wouldn't be in the situation", said Cook.

In Facebook's (and Google's for that matter) perspective, they are providing a free service that is accessible to everyone.

A couple of weeks ago, major publications exposed Facebook's knowledge of Cambridge Analytica's data-collection habits, but didn't inform its users about any of it. Recently, Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO, said that Facebook users should pay for the option to not have their data tracked by ads.

Numerous celebrities also have joined the #DeleteFacebook exodus, including Cher, Will Ferrell, Rosie O'Donnell and Jim Carrey. The company is said to have retained private data from 87 million Facebook users despite having assured Facebook that the data was deleted. Cambridge Analytica's harvesting of user data has supplied another datapoint instance Facebook being used to sway the U.S. Presidential election.
