The Cambridge Analytica scandal has been a nightmare for over 87 million users & even Facebook themselves. After this scandal, many users have have deleted their accounts & the biggest recent addition to that list must be Steve Wozniak who is the co-founder of Apple Computer, Inc..

Steve Wozniak said that he’ll not let Facebook grab any more of his data & deleted his account. In a mail to USA Today, he said,
“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…Ads and spam are bad things these days and there are no controls over them. Or transparency.”
As big industry officials are taking their steps backwards from Facebook, the amount of trust on Facebook has started to fall down in a huge extent. The price of the market shares of Facebook has been falling as well. Though, Facebook has started to clarify this issue, but, as the data of that over 87 million users have been stolen & already have been used in a terribly wrong way, users seem to be kept loosing more & more of their privacy during that period & no one has any clue if still their data is safe or not.
So, can Facebook stand back & regain the trust of their users ? Well, even they can go to a certain extent with new & updated policies, they will not be able to recover the 100% of that because, you know, when a piece of glass breaks into pieces, you can use glue to put that together but, can never heal the crack mark.
