Apple co-Founder Steve Wozniak urged Facebook users to delete their accounts because of privacy concerns.
The man who founded Apple alongside Steve Jobs thinks the risks outweigh the benefits on the social media site. Here’s his warning for anyone who uses it… the platforms are eavesdropping on your private conversations, and sending that precious data to advertisers.
“I worry because you’re having conversations that you think are private. … You’re saying words that really shouldn’t be listened to because you don’t expect it,” Wozniak said in an interview with TMZ on June 28 at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. “But there’s almost no way to stop it. People think they have a level of privacy they don’t.”
“There are many different kinds of people, and some, the benefits of Facebook are worth the loss of privacy, but to many like myself, my recommendation is — to most people — is you should figure out a way to get off Facebook.
My problem is that I am forced to use these liberal-leaning products with no other real choices to be found. I swear the left owns the internet.
I’ve been trying to for years! To this day I keep getting messages asking if I’m having trouble logging into my long deceased Facebook account. Those things are harder to kill than roaches.

“Steve Wozniak said he’s disgusted with @facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for allegedly #violating user #privacy by selling their #personal #data to third parties without their consent—for years.”
That makes two of us, Woz.
US “data privacy protections” don’t exist. Ask @Equifax.

#Wozniak on #Zuckerberg: “He buys a house and he buys all the houses around it, and then he buys some property in Hawaii and then he buys the parcels on the side of that for his own #privacy. I wish he would think of me that way as a user of #Facebook” https://t.co/Q1zqBhsypu
