Apple Cofounder Steve Wozniak deleted his Facebook account last year and is now telling anyone willing to listen to do the same before it’s too late.
TMZ interviewed Wozniak at Reagan National Airport in D.C. last Friday and asked him if he’s troubled by Facebook, Instagram and other social media platforms infringing on his privacy. Woz responded by saying social platforms are eavesdropping on our private conversations, and sending personal data to advertisers. With the lack of privacy on social media, he said, most people should delete their accounts.
“There are many different kinds of people, and some the benefits of Facebook are worth the loss of privacy,” Woz told TMZ.
“But to many like myself, my recommendation is—to most people—you should figure out a way to get off Facebook.”
Woz suggested, that at this point, there’s no way to stop the invasion of privacy by Big Tech.
