Apple is permitting iPhone customers to opt out of ad generation functions which Facebook says will destroy small companies
And not all Facebook employees are on the side of the corporate giant that pays their salaries. Some are siding with Apple.
A number of employees have supposedly referred to Facebook’s marketing campaign towards Apple as “self-serving and hypocritical.”
Some confirmed that Apple’s intent to permit customers to opt-in to have their information shared for ad generation negatively impacts Facebook.
Instead of complaining how Apple’s new privacy rule hurts the social media firm, however, its employees say that Facebook is utilizing small companies as a form of self-protection.
Dan Levy, Facebook’s vice chairman for adverts mentioned, “It feels like we are trying to justify doing a bad thing by hiding behind people with a sympathetic message.”
Questions are now being asked about whether or not Facebook’s battle with Apple and using small companies in this manner is honest.
But other Facebook employees are backing the firm.
Facebook Vice Chairman of Product Advertising and Marketing, Graham Mudd, stayed in step with Facebook’s ‘concerns‘ in regards to the harm that Apple’s plans will do to small companies.
Not every Facebook worker believes that that is the main focus of Facebook’s message though, and for now it seems that the number of those who doubt how Apple’s privacy program will negatively effect small companies is growing.
