Mark Zuckerberg slams Apple CEO Tim Cook's 'extremely glib' Facebook criticism
Apr 03, 2018, 04:12
Zuckerberg described Cook's assessment that Apple has a more solid model because it sells products to users, rather than selling users to advertisers, as "extremely glib, and not at all aligned with the truth". In the just-published interview, Zuckerberg responds strongly to Cook's criticisms of Facebook'sbusiness model, which in turn come from an upcoming MSNBC interview, which is set to air on April 6. In a speech months later, Cook seemingly addressed Zuckerberg's "frustration", saying, "I'm speaking to you from Silicon Valley, where some of the most prominent and successful companies have built their businesses by lulling their customers into complacency about their personal information".
Some Facebook users are deleting their accounts after it was recently revealed that a British political consulting firm for President Donald Trump, Cambridge Analytica, harvested data from personal accounts in an alleged effort to sway the 2016 presidential election.
Zuckerberg said that both Buddhists and the Rohingya were being incited towards violence in messages sent on the website.
Alexandr Kogan, a psychological researcher at Cambridge, constructed a Facebook-based personality profiling app that collected public information from users who elected to take the survey. "The reality here is that if you wanna build a service that helps connect everyone in the world, then there are a lot of people (that) can't afford to pay". She has used Facebook to advertise for small businesses she owned. Over the years, the service has become one of Facebook's most powerful advertising tools as businesses use it to drive repeat sales.
Following the latest revelations that exposed how Facebook has treated data privacy in the past, Zuckerberg has to do much more convincing that his company cares about its users than perhaps any other CEO right now.
An official statement issued last month had said: "Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Government of India, has issued a notice.to Cambridge Analytica, wherein the serious breach of propriety and misuse of data meant to profile and influence voting behaviour has been highlighted". "I think it's important that we don't all get Stockholm Syndrome and let the companies that work hard to charge you more convince you that they actually care more about you".
Unlike Facebook, Apple previously has demonstrated its ability to make a strong decision when it comes to privacy.
To prove how fast Facebook changes its version of the truth, let's also remember back when Zuckerberg candidly said that fake news on Facebook influencing the outcome of the United States election was a "pretty insane idea". The resulting outrage has led to a decline in the company's stock price.
David Segal, executive director of Demand Progress, argued in a statement on Monday that tech companies' long-term response to the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal will ultimately determine whether the internet is used "for transformational change for the better" or for "the extraction of sensitive private information and manipulation towards the benefit of large corporations or for social control by governments". What, you think because you're paying Apple that you're somehow in alignment with them?
