Facebook and Apple are at loggerheads, and the former is leaving no stone unturned in showing its disapproval.
The updated terms now require apps to seek user’s consent before tracking them. Facebook is opposing these updated terms because it believes that it will negatively affect small businesses everywhere.
Here’s what Facebook published in its ads:
“We’re standing up to Apple for small businesses everywhere” because it will “limit businesses’ ability to run personalized ads and reach their customers effectively.”Facebook
Facebook ads end with this line to thrust its words further – “small businesses deserve to be heard’.
All That Concern Could Be Two-Sided
Well, Facebook going all out and about to protect its small business owners is great. But we find its actions a little too desperate as if it is trying to protect its own interest here.
Facebook has been infamous for keeping its users’ information without giving much thought to their privacy. The company has made a fortune for itself by snooping on users’ data and saving every bit of it. Facebook is one of the leading ad platforms with the highest target-based ads, only possible through in-depth user data.
Facebook’s wrath was not limited to just the newspapers; the company vented its emotions without filters on its official blog. In the official blog post, Facebook states that Apple’s privacy policies will harm the ‘free internet’, and it went on to share more details to backs its argument.
