Mark Zuckerberg Told Facebook Staff To Inflict Pain On Apple

Apple and Facebook used to work together as in an interview in 2014, Tim Cook called Facebook a partner

As the privacy war between Apple and Facebook escalates, The Wall Street Journal publishes a new report recently detailing how angry Facebook is at its opponent.

The report claims that the turning point in the war was what Apple CEO Tim Cook said in 2018 when Facebook was under fire for its Cambridge Analytics scandal.

Cook said during the interview that Apple would never make the same mistake and called for regulations to make sure similar situations didn’t happen again. In answer to his remark, Mark Zuckerberg called what Cook said untruthful and a ‘glib.’

The WSJ report said Zuckerberg was now even harsher than he used to be, telling his staff to inflict pain.

In 2020, Facebook took Epic Games’ side in its legal battle against Apple. While later the company decided to steer clear from the conflict, it still agreed to provide assistance and documents if Epic needs them. Rumour has it that Facebook is preparing its own lawsuit against Apple.

According to Facebook’s spokeswoman, the Cupertino tech giant’s decision when it chose between privacy and personalized service is a false trade-off.

The report by WSJ does mention that the two companies used to work together, referring to an interview in 2014 when Tim Cook called Facebook a partner.

After a few years of tension, Cook and Zuckerberg reportedly had a meeting in 2014 which results in a tense standoff, according to the report. However, the bad blood now is such that lobbyists and law firms voice their concerns that they wouldn’t be able to work for both.

Apple will reportedly introduce its App Tracking Transparency soon. Meanwhile, Cook shows no sign of stopping slamming Facebook for its business model which values engagement more than privacy, saying that it would lead to violence and polarization.
