Smart people stop using Facebook


<! –

-> – Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has called on Warganet to stop using Facebook for reasons of privacy of users' personal data.

"There are many types of people, and for some the benefits of Facebook are more valuable than losing confidentiality," said Wozniak, quoted by CNBC on Wednesday (07/10/2019).

But people who still have a reason, says Wozniak, will quickly erase their Facebook account because the statement made by Mark Zuckerberg exceeds the limits on the privacy of users' personal data.

"But for some, like me, my recommendation is for most people, you have to find a way to get out of Facebook," he continued.

If Warganet refuses to get away from the most popular social media, the person who co-founded Apple with the late Steve Jobs offers Facebook to provide a wider privacy environment for its users.

For example, app users may pay so data is not passed on to third parties.

Wozniak's statement was triggered by the unfolding of the Cambridge Analytica scandal that revealed the leakage of millions of Facebook users.

Meanwhile, Wozniak himself left and wiped out his Facebook account last April. The reason this application is more detrimental to him.

"This social network gives me more harm than good, Apple has a safer way to share things with my users, I can still survive in old ways such as e-mail and short messages," said his last post before deactivating a Facebook account .

Wozniak said before deleting his Facebook profile, he first changed and erased some information about him, so his personal data is not owned by other countries.

"I do not want anyone else to take over my account, although it's another Steve Wozniak, but I do not mind sharing 5,000 Facebook friends, and many people do not know me there," he said.
