Mark Zuckerberg hits back at Tim Cook – CWEB.com
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg rejected Apple CEO Tim Cook’s critique of his company’s business model.
It’s ‘extremely glib and not aligned with the truth.
“You know, I find that argument, that if you’re not paying that somehow we can’t care about you, to be extremely glib,” Mr Zuckerberg sais on interview published by Vox today. “And not at all aligned with the truth.”
He took a swipe at Apple’s notoriously expensive products, adding that Facebook was “squarely in the camp of the companies that work hard to charge you less and provide a free service that everyone can use” and “if you want to build a service which is not just serving rich people, then you need to have something that people can afford.”
Tim Cook the Apple CEO last week went against the social media giant for selling people’s data to third parties, amid growing controversy over how Facebook operates.
Zuckerberg said that Cook’s opinion — that Apple offers a better business model as it sells products to users rather than user data to advertisers — was “extremely glib, and not at all aligned with the truth.”
