He was mad enough to tell his executives to use Android phones instead of Apple's iPhone, according to a massive new report from The New York Times. But the incident highlights just how personally Facebook's founder took the criticism from Apple CEO Tim Cook.

But Cook and Zuckerberg have traded barbs for years.

Facebook said it ended its contract with Definers on Wednesday, Nov. 14, after the Times report was published, but the company didn't offer an explicit reason for terminating its association with the PR firm.

Mr Zuckerberg said that Facebook remains free to use because it's focused on connecting people and many people can't afford to pay, therefore, "having an advertising-supported model is the only rational model that can support building this service to reach people". As reported by 9to5Mac, Zuckerberg gave the statement in response to what Tim Cook has said.


Earlier this spring, Apple CEO Tim Cook criticized Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a very public manner related to its privacy scandals and the Cambridge Analytica affair.

"The truth is, we could make a ton of money if we monetised our customer". While we still have a long way to go, we're proud of the progress we have made in fighting misinformation, removing bad content and preventing foreign actors from manipulating our platform'.

Soon after, Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg in an interview with Recode said that she "respectfully disagrees" with Cook's critique. The Apple CEO has also been critical of social media companies tracking user habits and other data. Privacy to us is a human right. "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".
