In the tech pioneer's opinion, Zuckerberg obviously values his privacy far more than he does of Facebook's users, considering how he lives his personal life.

In an email interview with USA Today, Wozniak wrote that he was no longer satisfied with Facebook, knowing that it makes money off of user data.

So, Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak has recently taken the decision of leaving the platform after all of this. Wozniak said he'd rather pay for Facebook than have his personal information exploited for advertising.

Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak is the latest public figure to bail on Facebook, following recent revelations about the social network's data harvesting and monetizing practices.

"I don't think there has been any meaningful impact we've observed", he said on a conference call. In his words, Facebook is essentially making money on the identities and info of its users without the users seeing any of the proceeds.

He also told the Council that Moscow has warned the US of grave repercussions if it carries out strikes against Syrian forces. Moscow has said its experts have not found "any trace of chlorine or any other chemical substance used against civilians".

Russell Crowe's 'Divorce' Auction Included Life-Size Prop Horses… and His 'Gladiator' Codpiece
Although his divorce from Danielle Spencer was a year ago , today would have been the couple's 15th wedding anniversary. A pair of Doc Martens boots worn by Crowe in the 1992 film Romper Stomper went under the hammer for $10,000.

Wozniak explained that Facebook doesn't safeguard its consumers' data the manner Apple (AAPL) does, also instead profits from its user's information.

Its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, will testify before Congress on Wednesday to explain how the scandal unfolded and try to convince the world that it won't happen again.

Zuckerberg fired back, calling the statement "extremely glib" and explaining that ads are a way to offer its service for free so it doesn't only serve "rich people". I don't want anyone to be unhappy with our services or what we do as a company. "My disgust goes to Facebook". Its stance on protecting user information from third parties has been well-documented-at least in the U.S.

Facebook has created a huge controversy by selling the user data. "Apple has more safe methods to share stuffs about users". The firm was also linked to Donald Trump's presidential campaign, for which Facebook is already accused of promoting political ads backed by Russian influence.

In an interview on NBC's Today Show, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg was asked if there was a way for users to completely "opt-out" of the advertising scheme. "We've been doing this for years", Cook said.
