Mark Zuckerberg slammed Apple CEO, Tim Cook while weighing the Cambridge Analytica scandal that rocked Facebook.
Cook said he would have never been in the situation of the Cambridge Analytica scandal that rocked Facebook and that truthfully
“we could make a ton of money if we monetized our customer – if our customer was our product. We have elected not to do that,” He said.
Cook did not like the need for regulation to limit what information tech giants pull from its users. So Zuckerberg responded on Monday calling Apple’s CEO comments “extremely glib” and not at all alligned with the truth.
While Apple and Facebook are both giant leaders in the tech industry, their revenue is generated in different ways as Facebook depends on targeted ads based on user data while Apple is relying on iPhone sales for two-thirds of its revenue.
Facebook is working hard to regain its trust from its customers after 50 million users had their information misused by Cambridge Analytica.
Mark Zuckerberg has claimed responsibility for the incident and acknowleged it was a mistake and has outlined steps.
He has said the social media platform will take measures to ensure privacy of users and prevent this scandal in the future.
