While Mark Zuckerberg spent all day yesterday answering awkward questions about Facebook from his booster seat, Recode published a new poll showing which tech companies are trusted the least when it comes to handling your data. You can probably guess which company came out the worst, but the data really shows that Facebook is in a league of its own of bad public opinion.

Respondents to Recode‘s survey were asked to choose which company they trust the least with their personal information, from a list of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Lyft, Microsoft, Netflix, Tesla, Twitter, Snap and Uber.
56 percent of respondents put Facebook, with the next-least-trusted company being Google, with a paltry 5 percent. Uber and Twitter finished tied 3rd, with 3 percent, while Snap, Apple, and Amazon were stuck on 2%. The big winners are Microsoft, Lyft, Tesla, and Netflix, who didn’t generate enough responses to even be significant.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak closing Facebook account

(UPI) — Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said he’s abandoning his Facebook account due to of concerns about the company’s use of personal data.

Facebook is currently enmeshed in several scandals, including the issue of privacy protocols in the wake of user data furnished to British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica. Facebook acknowledged that up to up to 87 million users may have had their data improperly shared.

Wozniak, who’s kept a relatively low profile since leaving Apple’s day-to-day operations in 1985, said in an email to USA Today, “Users provide every detail of their life to Facebook and … Facebook makes a lot of advertising money off this.”

“The profits are all based on the user’s info, but the users get none of the profits back,” he added. “Apple makes its money off of good products, not off of you. As they say, with Facebook, you are the product.”
