Facebook Accuses Apple Of Allegedly Restricting Competition Over Its New Ads Privacy Policy

Share

Facebook revealed its perspective that counters its rival Apple Inc, regarding the face-off between both tech giants that has been ongoing for months.

The social media company vice president representing Facebook’s ads section recently faulted Apple in public for allegedly engaging in anticompetitive business operation because Apple intends to make changes on its latest operating system concerning its privacy.

Dan Levy (Facebook’s Vice President for ads Business Products) said “Apple is behaving anti-competitively by using their control of the App Store to benefit their bottom line at the expense of creators and small businesses.”

The iPhone maker said its policy change does not have a poignant impact on the social media company to change its policies. Silicon Valley company said Facebook can still uphold their methodology in tracking of users to initiating targeted ads.

However, Facebook would give Apple device users the option to opt in to access its custom advertisement or not.

Apple said “We believe that this is a simple matter of standing up for our users. Users should know when their data is being collected and shared across other apps and websites — and they should have the choice to allow that or not.” furthermore, Apple was reported to have delayed in response to Facebook’s allegations.

The social media giant published a full-page critique exposé on high profiled newspapers disparaging Apple’s intent to change its privacy access on its platform, which further hinders other apps’ ability to accumulate user’s data that accesses targeting ads.

Facebook’s argument focused on the fact that the iPhone maker’s new privacy policy will not affect Apple’s custom-made advertising platform. As a result of abusing its domineering position, the iPhone maker intends to enact its policies on other tech companies.

In contrast to Apple’s comment in June 2020 relating to its recent modified privacy policy, Apple said that such ad tracking activity via other apps or websites administered by other tech companies would promptly notify its iPhone users seeking permission to track a user.

Apple noted that digital advertising companies are also aware of consumer behavior, thus expecting 80% of users to decline the pop-up notification impulsively.

Dan Levy then said that his company is still in disagreement with the iPhone maker’s decision to monopolizing its ads platform.

He said that Facebook would act per Apple’s new policy because they do not have a say to preserve the social media availability in the Apple app store, which will also sustain their relevance in the tech industry for complying with a dominant company, Apple.

However, Levy did not mention if Facebook intends to counter the iPhone maker’s new policy in any way.

Before this recent disagreement between the two tech giants, Facebook had opposed Apple’s commission it charges for apps to be listed in the App Store.

In Apple’s perspective — it was not expected for the social media giant to compare itself with small-time app developers because they have the resources to sort the bills.
