Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is closing his Facebook account as one of the latest tech leaders who started to distance themselves from the world's largest social media firm following its scandal involving alleged misuse of user data. Wozniak told the USA Today daily on Monday that he was taken aback by the extent of Facebook's data collection when he changed and deleted some of his information before deactivating his account, reports Xinhua. "I was surprised to see how many categories for ads and how many advertisers I had to get rid of, one at a time. I did not feel that this is what people want done to them," he said in an email to the American newspaper. "Users provide every detail of their life to Facebook and ... Facebook makes a lot of advertising money off this," he said. "The profits are all based on the user's info, but the users get none of the profits back," he added.
