Zuckerberg reportedly told Facebook execs to use Android, not Apple, phones

From CNET: It looks like Mark Zuckerberg can hold a grudge.

The Facebook CEO reportedly ordered his management team to start using only Android phones after Apple CEO Tim Cook made public comments about the social media company's Cambridge Analytica data scandal, according to a report Wednesday in The New York Times.

"We're not going to traffic in your personal life," Cook said, referencing the scandal in an MSNBC interview in March: "Privacy to us is a human right. It's a civil liberty."

After these remarks, the Times reported, Zuckerberg told Facebook executives to use only Android phones because that operating system has higher usage worldwide than Apple's iPhone OS. It's not clear if Zuckerberg's management team did switch to Android phones. Facebook didn't immediately respond to request for comment.

But in a blog post Thursday that rebutted points raised in the Times story, Facebook said "we've long encouraged our employees and executives to use Android because it is the most popular operating system in the world."
