A right-leaning news site called the NTK Network, affiliated with Definers, published "dozens of articles" that criticized Apple as well as Google "for unsavory business practices", including one that slammed Cook for hypocrisy over his stance on privacy, per the New York Times.

In an interview, Tim Cook insinuates that Facebook is trafficking your personal life while emphasising that privacy to Apple is a human right and a civil liberty.

Facebook also said, "Tim Cook has consistently criticized our business model and Mark has been equally clear he disagrees". What prompted this freaky decision was a comment by Apple CEO Tim Cook, in which he took a subtle jibe at the social media company for being in the middle of the biggest data security scandal in history, the Cambridge Analytica controversy. The quotes arrived during Facebook's Cambridge Analytica data-sharing scandal, where the personal data of around 87 million Facebook users was alleged to have been improperly shared with the analytics company.


"And we've long encouraged our employees and executives to use Android because it is the most popular operating system in the world", the social networking giant added. Then again, when Recode's Kara Swisher asked Cook what would he do if he was Mark Zuckerberg, Cook replied, "I wouldn't be in this situation". All this information was revealed in a recent article of New York Times titled "Deny and Deflect: How Facebook's Leaders Fought Through Crisis".

"The truth is, we could make a ton of money if we monetised our customer. We've elected not to do that".

Reacting to Mr Cook's remarks, Mr Zuckerberg had said his remarks about the social networking giant were "extremely glib".
