Woz has an idea: "Why don't they give me a choice? Let me pay a certain amount and you'll keep my data more secure and private."
He's tired that every time he "likes" something on social media, his preference is being relayed to advertisers.
Oh, Woz. Those advertisers just want you to be happy. And their products, which seem to correlate with your preferences, are specifically created to do that. Why can't you be grateful?
Of course, at the very heart of world snoopiness is Facebook. Is the only option for people to delete it from their lives?
"There are many different kinds of people," said Woz. "For some, the benefits of Facebook are worth the loss of privacy."
Who are these people? What are these benefits? The sheer psychological joy of getting a "like"? I fear Woz himself might be moved by getting those.
But he's made of sturdier stuff. He's already left Facebook. So he explained: "To many, like myself, my recommendation is -- to most people -- is you should figure out a way to get off Facebook."
Naturally, I asked Facebook what it thought of Woz's draconian thoughts and will update, should I hear.
Still, even former Facebook employees are worried what Facebook is doing to humanity. Why, former president Sean Parker is now concerned what it's done to children's brains. (Not just children's, Sean.)
