Apple co-founder States he's 'disgusted' by Face-book

Apple co-founder States he's 'disgusted' by Face-book

"Facebook makes a lot of advertising money off this", he said in an email to USA Today.

Wozniak, who co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs, said he'd rather pay for the service than have his personal information exploited for advertising. He said while Facebook made money off this, the users did not get any share of the profits back.

However, Steve continues to be attached to his Facebook handle "stevewoz" and is loath to give up on that, not even for another Steve Wozniak. The announcement of the tech pioneer marks the recent development in backward and forward corporate sniping by tech leaders as Facebook deals with a disgrace over the possible mistreatment of consumer data by Cambridge Analytica-the political targeting firm.

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". Recently, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak announced that he is joining the opposition and will not use the service any longer.

Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, on Saturday told NBC News that if users aren't comfortable with their data being shared with advertisers, they would have to pay to use the platform. Last month, Tesla CEO Elon Musk deleted Facebook pages for Tesla, SolarCity and SpaceX.

Wozniak's move came just before Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg planned to testify before congressional committees about the company's Cambridge Analytica scandal. He also stressed that Apple reviews all apps as a way to weed out potential violators of its privacy standards.

In the wake of the Cambridge Analytica controversy, the #DeleteFacebook movement grows by the day. Carry, who also said that he would dump the stocks in the company, stated that user data should be handled more responsibly, and that activist investors should send a message asking the company to have responsible conduct.

Zuckerberg in return hit back on Cook by calling his comments extremely "grib".
