Facebook Critical of Apple to Deflect Attention

The company that compiles the personal information of every single user it meets is criticizing Apple for hurting small businesses. Facebook, in a classic case of deflecting criticism at its own front door, has attacked the rules of the App Store that have been in place since day one.

Facebook, which opted to be critical of Apple while recently trying to defend itself before a committee of the U.S. Congress, has once again attacked Apple over the fees charged for listings in the App Store.

The fees are an easy target especially when associated with the wealth of Apple Inc. However, the fees were established long ago when Apple was still struggling as a company. In fact, those fees and other charges for services are a large part of the company’s success and there is nothing illegal about being successful.

Like so many other tech journalists, Jim Dalrymple of TheLoop says, “Facebook is just a creepy company that does everything it can to take advantage of its users for profit.” (

Facebook is facing closer scrutiny every day as governments across the world begin to question the company’s practices in taking advantage of users who believe Facebook services are free. The fact is, people are paying handsomely as they give up their privacy and allow Facebook to sell their personal details for profit. It has been said that if there is no charge for the product, you are the product.
