New Delhi: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly ordered his management executives to pin down from using Apple phones and rather use Android devices as it has more total users across the world. However, a report from New York Times suggestd that Facebook boss gave this order after Apple CEO Tim Cook made public remarks criticizing the social media giant in links with Cambridge Analytica outrage. Apple CEO Tim Cook condemned Facebook in an MSNBC interview for being a service that traffics ‘in your personal life’.
The interview with Cook held in March where he also fired a question of what would he do if he were in Zuckerberg’s shoes dealing with the fight from the Cambridge Analytica scandal by asserting, “I wouldn’t be in this situation.”
Giving it support to Apple CEO, Zuckerberg during an interview with Recode stated, “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 because that sounds ridiculous to me.”
Android phones are well-liked in many regions outside of the United States, including South America, Europe, Russia, South Asia, and parts of the Middle East. So far there is no official declaration of the order from the company nor it’s apparent if Zuckerberg’s management team did switch to Android phones.
