Since the Cambridge Analytica scandal first broke, many high-profile users joined the Delete Facebook campaign.

Tech guru Steve Wozniak said he has deleted his Facebook account because of the social network's exploitation of people's personal data. Especially when says that he's leaving Facebook. Tim Cook had commented earlier that he wouldn't find himself and Apple in the same situation as Zuckerberg and Facebook as Apple respects its customers' privacy.

The co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak, is abandoning Facebook over how it and other Internet companies treat the private information of users. "Apple only makes its money off of good products, so it can be done".

Additionally, almost all of Facebook's users could've had an app siphon off their user data without their consent at some point during their Facebook lives.

Without mentioning the U.S. , he said other parties to the deal are "instigating Iran" to break its commitment to the agreement. The U.S. dollar jumped in a day from 54,700 rials to 60,000 rials in the open market in Tehran on Monday.


Although WhatsApp is owned by Facebook, the company has claimed that it garners "very little data" from its users.

Zuckerberg will testify Tuesday and Wednesday on Capitol Hill about Facebook privacy and the Cambridge Analytica scandal. "I am in the procedure of stepping away from Facebook". Wozniak said that the social networking giant has brought more negatives to him rather than positives. "I think the best regulation is no regulation, is self-regulation", he said. Apple has more secure ways to share things about yourself. "I can still deal with old school email and text messages", he wrote. Steve, however, has said he isn't deleting his Facebook account just yet.

Elon Musk took the plunge last month in the wake of revelations of a sizable data breach that resulted from an affiliation with research firm Cambridge Analytica. During a joint interview with Recode and MSNBC, he was asked what he would do about the crisis if he were in Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's position. "At Facebook, we are squarely in the camp of the companies that work hard to charge you less and provide a free service that everyone can use". While it's possible to leave Facebook without retiring from Messenger, there's always the risk that Facebook will keep on collecting data on its users.
