Apple CEO Tim Cook took a shot at Facebook's embattled chief Mark Zuckerberg in an interview with Record and MSNBC Wednesday night, rebuking the social platform's collection of user data.

"If we monetized our customer, if our customer was our product, we could make a ton of money", Cook said. "We've elected not to do that", Cook said. And we're not going to traffic in your personal life.

"Privacy to us is a human right", Cook said. The remarks echoed what he said in China over the weekend, when Cook described Facebook's current predicament as "dire" and suggested "some well-crafted regulation is necessary".

Cook's full quote was: "But I'm just saying that it's not what we want to put in our store. However, I think we're beyond that here", he said.

He says that if a consumer buys any of their products, Apple will make a little bit of money. "I do think it's time that a set of people think deeply about what can be done". "It's a civil liberty", he added. "And we don't subscribe to the view that you have to let everybody in that wants to or if you don't, you don't believe in free speech".

The Cambridge Analytica data breach is one of the biggest incidents of its kind, where the data of more than 50 million Facebook accounts was collected and shared. Now he has to deal with a #DeleteFacebook campaign that is trending, and is expected to testify before Congress on how something like this could happen in the first place.

"Nobody does that", joked Swisher, to which Cook responded: "I'm not making fun of it!"

Though the interview of MSNBC is scheduled to air on April 6th, the network has released few clips this week, in which Tim Cook bashed against Facebook.

That said, it's worth knowing that Apple knows a great deal about you, even though it rarely explicitly asks for your information like Facebook does.

What do you think of Tim Cook's comments? Facebook has been caught in a medial maelstrom over its lax approach to data sharing; specifically over the Cambridge Analytica issue, through which it was recently revealed that Facebook users' data was being used by the firm with the intent to influence the 2016 United States election.
