Otherwise social media sites will think they can get away with murder.
The highest profile Facebook Leaver is Steve Wozniak who told USA Today that he is fed up social media sites’ careless attitude to peoples’ private information.
“Users provide every detail of their life to Facebook and … Facebook makes a lot of advertising money off this,” says Woz, “the profits are all based on the user’s info, but the users get none of the profits back.”
“Apple makes its money off of good products, not off of you,” Wozniak said, “as they say, with Facebook, you are the product.”
Apple boss Tim Cook contrasts FB’s free and easy approach to letting anyone post any content on its site to Apple’s attitude to contributed content where it reviews apevery app submitted.
“We don’t subscribe to the view that you have to let everybody in that wants to, or if you don’t, you don’t believe in free speech,” says Cook, “we don’t believe that.”
