Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak encourages deleting Facebook accounts

Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple (you may have heard of it) was interviewed by TMZ - in what appears to be an unplanned encounter - and discussed his thoughts on Facebook and other social and online media as it relates to privacy.

"I’m worried about everything," Wozniak said. "I don’t think you can stop it, though. Who knows if my cell phone is listening right now?"

Of course, TMZ was listening... and filming. Wozniak went on to say that that there was almost no way to stop it. "People think they have a level of privacy that they don't."

The trick is indeed the tradeoff between access to so much data - often free - and what details about yourself you're willing to give up in exchange. Facebook, Google, Amazon, and other online giants have access to a TON of data on anyone who goes online on their platforms. That can be good in some ways but quite ominous in others.

See what Wozniak has to say in full in this brief TMZ interview at Reagan National Airport below.
