Tim Cook was asked for his thoughts on the Facebook latest privacy fiasco at the China Development Forum in Beijing on Saturday and to which he responded that the tech companies should specify that how they will be dealing with the users data and some regulations should be formed for the same.

Tim said, “I think that this certain situation is so dire and has become so large that probably some well-crafted regulation is necessary,” he further added, “The ability of anyone to know what you’ve been browsing about for years, who your contacts are, who their contacts are, things you like and dislike and every intimate detail of your life — from my own point of view, it shouldn’t exist.”

Even during the CNN interview earlier this week, Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg didn’t oppose the idea of outside regulations for the customer data or the user data.

Facebook has been running sorry campaigns apologizing to what has happened due to their mistake, while some angry users on the other hand are running the #deletefacebook campaign to turn more and more Facebook followers into the criticizers.

The heat of the fiasco can be felt in India also after the latest remark of Rahul Gandhi on NaMo app being transferring the users’ data to the foreign countries.

Not only this, Elon Musk has also deleted the Facebook pages of his companies, SpaceX and Tesla, after being challenged on Twitter to prove whether he is ‘The Man’.

As the controversy doesn’t seem to take a chill a few more days or for few weeks, so you can keep visiting for more updates on this matter.
