The essence of the conflict

In the spring, in the midst of a scandal around Cambridge Analytica, Tim cook gave an interview on MSNBC, in which unflattering spoke about the business model of Facebook. He believes that service is too actively interfere in personal life, and that detailed profiles in social networks with a huge amount of information about the user simply should not exist.

Of course, Zuckerberg defended Facebook: “If you want to create a service that serves not only rich people, you need to have something that people can afford”. Mark could not resist a return stud, noting that if a company is trying to earn more money on us, it does not mean that she really cares more about us.
Another reason to abandon the iPhone

The decision to transfer employees Facebook on Android can be in no way associated with the statements cook. Apple has a strong position in the US, but in other regions, the iPhone is noticeably inferior to the popularity of Android smartphones. If you leave everything as it is, the user of the social network will have a vague idea of how their app platform, which is used by most of the audience.

Team Snapchat has faced this problem — it began to lose service Android users due to weak apps compared to the iOS version.

The official comment on Facebook saying that they’ve been encouraged employees and managers to use Android, as it is the most popular operating system in the world.

The Verge checked the latest publication of the top managers in social networks, and some of them still write with the iPhone. Apparently, the prohibition does not apply to personal use of a smartphone out of the office.
