Infuriated by Mr Cook's comments, Facebook founder ordered his management team to only use Android phones - arguing that the operating system had far more users than Apple's, according to an investigative report by the Times. During a call with reporters, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook will create a new independent body that people can appeal to on whether certain content can stay up or down. But the two companies have publicly traded barbs for months.
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.
The said ecosystem has been contributing to Apple's bottom line in leaps and bounds lately without having to open it to third-party personal data scrubbers like Facebook or Google sometimes do.
"And we've long encouraged our employees and executives to use Android because it is the most popular operating system in the world", the social networking giant added. The Apple CEO has also been critical of social media companies tracking user habits and other data.

In the same interview and in subsequent speeches, Cook called for privacy regulation that would impact businesses like Facebook, which make their money from ads, significantly more than Apple, which makes money from hardware sales.
Cook said that Apple wouldn't traffic in a customer's personal life and that privacy was a human right. The interview was held before Zuckerberg was expected to appear before Congress in the United States to testify in the Cambridge Analytical issue.
In on broadcast interview, Cook was asked what his advice would be on the situation and responded "I wouldn't be in that situation". "Because that sounds ridiculous to me", the Facebook founder told Vox in an interview.
