New Delhi: Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO had asked the company’s senior management to switch to Android smartphones. Zuckerberg was “infuriated” by the comments made by Apple CEO Tim Cook in relation to the handling of data privacy by Facebook, according to a report by the New York Times.

Following the statement, Zuckerberg had asked the company’s senior management to start using only Android devices and stop using iPhones. Android has a wider user base in comparison to iOS, said Zuckerberg at the time of giving this order.

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 story describes Facebook’s response to all the recent problems and queries around user privacy data.

The article also talks about the reaction of Mark Zuckerberg on the statement made by Apple CEO Tim Cook. During an interview to MSNBC, Tim Cook said, “We’re not going to traffic in your personal life. Privacy to us is a human right. It’s a civil liberty.” Apple CEO further added that he wouldn’t be in this state if he was in Zuckerberg’s shoes.

The Facebook CEO gave the statement in response to what Tim Cook has said, as reported by 9to5Mac. Zuckerberg further added, “If you want to build a service which is not just serving rich people, then you need to have something people can afford.

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.”
