Facebook needs a few years to fix problems: Zuckerberg

03 April, 2018, 04:45 | Author: Genevieve Gibbs

Facebook has been under intense pressure after it admitted that Cambridge Analytica, a company that worked on President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, had accessed and improperly stored a huge trove of its user data. Cook says Facebook's money-making method is ethically flawed, and Zuckerberg says Apple's approach is no better because it rejects the majority of the population who can't afford Apple products.

Today the next shot was sacked in the war of words pitting Mark Zuckerberg vs Tim Cook.

Zuckerberg also used his interview to push back against recent criticism from Apple CEO Tim Cook, who had blasted Facebook following the Cambridge Analytica revelations. "And not at all aligned with the truth", he said.

But that would require changing Senate rules, something for which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has shown no enthusiasm. President Barack Obama's administration allowed sign-ups during a set period of time, and the program is closed to new entrants.

This is why having an advertising-based business model is the only "rational" one to support such a wide-reaching service, Zuckerberg argued. Facebook may have grand plans for connecting the world in some sort of online harmony, but the Cambridge Analytica scandal (among others) proves that as good-natured as that plan may be, it is also risky.

"He said, 'There are companies that work hard to charge you more, and there are companies that work hard to charge you less.' And at Facebook, we are squarely in the camp of the companies that work hard to charge you less and provide a free service that everyone can use".

According to a Facebook statement, the company said the video files were supposed to be deleted as the user intended but a bug prevented the footage from being fully removed from the social network's servers.

Several companies, including Hulu , Nutrish , Nestlé and TripAdvisor , have yanked their advertisements from Ingraham's show. It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children. "Have some healthy reflections this Holy Week", he tweeted .

What Zuckerberg said is not totally wrong. "To the contrary, 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".

In other words: Apple prioritizes privacy because it can. "We haven't done a good job of publishing and being transparent about the prevalence of those kinds of issues, and the work that we're doing and the trends of how we're driving those things down over time". When Apple's CEO was asked what he would do if he were Zuckerberg, Cook said, "I wouldn't be in this situation". Last month, the tech entrepreneur took out an ad in the New York Times to apologize to users. Instead, the video recording remained and continued to be associated with the user's account even though it never publicly appeared on Facebook.

The IT Ministry had, last month, shot off notices to social media giant Facebook as well as Cambridge Analytica on the data breach issue and the deadline for the British data analytics firm to respond to the notice was March 31. The data-sharing scandal has taken a toll on Facebook's stock as well. The resulting outrage has led to a decline in the company's stock price.

This story was first published on CNN.com, "Mark Zuckerberg hits back at Tim Cook". A day after, Cook said he "wouldn't be in this situation" if he were in Zuckerberg's shoes, in an interview with USA media outlets Recode and MSNBC.
