Apple's Cook Has Pointed Advice for Facebook's Zuckerberg

"The truth is, we could make a ton of money if we monetized our customer, if our customer was our product".

"We've elected not to do that", Cook explained, according to Recode. However, he went on to say: "But from our point of view, we didn't want to create this contest". An onslaught of negative reactions ensued both from many people and the press due to deep-seated concerns Facebook doesn't care about digital privacy and rather profit off knowing as much about users - like their tendencies and traits - as possible.

Apple CEO Tim Cook believes it is too late for social platforms like Facebook to avoid regulation. In this context, responding to questions on data breach, and restriction and regulation of data, Tim responded: "I think that this certain situation is so dire and has become so large that probably some well-crafted regulation is necessary". "However, I think we're beyond that here, and I do think that it's time for a set of people to think deeply about what can be done here".

"I think it's their decision".

However, Cook appears to have worked out that Apple's target market is not right-wing neo-conservative Christians in the U.S. bible belt, but young upwardly mobile kids in cities who have more money than sense and know little about technology.

Apple is still a hardware company that makes the bulk of its revenues from devices, while Facebook nearly exclusively relies on advertising to make money, which requires extensive user data to fine-tune targeting. "It's a civil liberty", he added. Apple has policies of what is and isn't allowed there, and so Hayes and Swisher pressed him on whether Facebook's privacy issues might lead Apple to do something with that power. Now he has to deal with a #DeleteFacebook campaign that is trending, and is expected to testify before Congress on how something like this could happen in the first place.

In 2014 when Facebook was the golden child of the tech industry, Apple in an open letter to its customers had said, "When an online service is free".

"Nobody does that", joked Swisher, to which Cook responded: "I'm not making fun of it!"
