Apple’s Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Has Deleted His Facebook Account
Ozaniyak has already deleted personal facebook id. He left the popular social media because of the abuse of users’ personal information.
In an interview with USA Today, Wozniak said: “Facebook has both good and bad. But the bad side is more. So I deleted the facebook id.
Wozniak also said that Apple is selling revenue from the sale. And the customers benefited from using that product. On the other hand, the social media earns a lot of money by advertising using the user’s shared personal information. In exchange, users are not getting benefits anymore.
Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal, and its abuse of the user’s data in the field of American politics awakened the technology world everywhere. So that Wozniak announced the farewell to Facebook.
A few days ago, technology entrepreneur Elon Musk deleted the Facebook account of Tesla and SpaceX owned by him.
WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton has also launched a new hashtag “Delete Facebook” on Twitter.
In 2014, Facebook opened a door for third-party developers to get a certain amount of data from their platform. Data scientist Alexander Cognon created a Facebook app and took various information from users.
Later, the information was handed over to the Cognitive Behavior Research Group SCL and its branch company Cambridge Analytica. By violating the information from the third party, he violated Facebook’s policy. Knowing the incident Facebook asked Cambridge Analytica to delete data. Although the information was deleted at the time, the news was later leaked to the fact that Donald Trump utilized the data of USA based facebook user in the election campaign.
The whole thing came forward in front of the world by the confession of Christopher Wiley, who was associated with that work. Since then, Facebook cannot protect the information of the customers.
