Facebook did release a response to the Times report on Thursday, stating: 'We've acknowledged publicly on many occasions - including before Congress - that we were too slow to spot Russian interference on Facebook, as well as other misuse.

According to a well-known media source, of course, I am talking about none other than The New York Times, the social network giant Facebook's co-founder, of course, Mark Zuckerberg ordered his employees to give up iPhone and use Android smartphone only. He later ordered his management to only use Android phones, arguing that the mobile operating system had a wider user base compared with Apple's.


Facebook also said, "Tim Cook has consistently criticized our business model and Mark has been equally clear he disagrees".

"Russian interference" in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, prompting a backlash from Twitter users who blasted the actor for being sucked into the "McCarthyite" "Russia scare" they said was gripping the United States. "And we've long encouraged our employees and executives to use Android because it is the most popular operating system in the world", the statement reads. In an interview with MSNBC, Tim Cook had launched a tirade against Facebook for its involvement in the Cambridge Analytica scandal. But apparently something that Cook said earlier this year "infuriated" Zuckerberg.


"The truth is, we could make a ton of money if we monetised our customer. Privacy to us is a human right, a civil liberty", Cook had said. The story talks about Facebook's response on all the recent problems and questions around user privacy data.

When it comes to users, Apple has always said that it supports their data privacy. Simply share all your views and thoughts in the comment section below. "Because that sounds ridiculous to me", the Facebook founder told Vox in an interview.
