I don't need to talk here how polemic is Facebook. This week, the New York Times (in a very extensive and detailed article) showed how the social network dealt with the latest events that tarnished the company's reputation (such as a recent data leak, the fact of using the number of registered cell phones as a confirmation of two-factor authentication for trigger advertising, among other things).
One detail, however, called the attention of vehicles that cover the Apple world as a whole: the fact that at least according to Mark Zuckerberg's New York newspaper, he forced his management team to abandon their iPhones and switch to Android devices after several years. Tim Cook's comments on Facebook that enraged him.
Here is the passage from the text on the case:
"We are not going to traffic your personal life," said Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive, in an interview MSNBC. Privacy for us is a human right. civil freedom. (Cook's critics infuriated Zuckerberg, who later ordered his management team to use only Android phones arguing that the operating system had far more users than Apple's.)
At the time, after these statements by Cook, Zuckerberg himself tried to respond, arguing that Facebook is a company that works hard to charge less and offer the world a free service that everyone can use and that this in no way means not caring about people; on the other hand, he accused Apple of creating products that serve only the rich.
Facebook didn?t take long to answer some of the issues raised by the newspaper?s extensive story, such as ?Russian investigation?, ?Muslim ban?, ?combat only fake news?,? Legislation on sexual trafficking ?and, of course, the subject? Android ?. About this, the company stated:
Tim Cook has consistently criticized our business model and Mark has been equally clear that he disagrees. So there is no need to employ anyone else to do this for us. And we have long encouraged our employees and executives to use Android because it is the most popular operating system in the world.
In fact, there is no way to deny the argument.
