Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg ordered his team to only use Android phones right after a statement Tim Cook, Apple CEO, made regarding Facebook.
Cook described the social network as being a service that traffics ‘in one’s personal life’ and earlier this year, when asked what he would do if he were in Zuckerberg’s shoes dealing with the fallout from the Cambridge Analytica scandal, he said that “I wouldn’t be in this situation.”
Mr. Zuckerberg retorted in an interview with Recorde: “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.”
But it didn’t just stop there. Behind the scenes Facebook reportedly hired a public affairs company that was charged with writing negative articles about Apple.
Well, it seems that Mark’s feelings were so hurt that he took Tim Cook’s criticism personally and was acting very enraged. But let’s admit that Cook is questioning Zuckerberg ability to make right decisions.
Next time, whenever someone thinks about tickling Mark Zuckerberg, he or she should think twice before doing it as the tech giant might order his employees to stop using his or her products.
Now, all I can think of is how much Android will benefit from this. We all know that the purpose is to irritate Tim Cook – but imagine Mr. Zuckerberg ordering people to use your products and playing your ‘Brand Ambassador”?!
