- The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a digital rights nonprofit, has responded to Facebook's attack on Apple.
- The organization says that its argument against Apple's new privacy measures is "laughable."
Reported by 9to5Mac, The Electronic Frontier Foundation, an organization that describes itself as "the leading nonprofit defending digital privacy, free speech, and innovation", has sided with Apple in the Facebook versus Apple fight.
Facebook recently launched two newspaper ads attacking Apple for its new privacy labels that show what kind of data an app gathers and uses to track you. While Facebook has claimed that the new privacy measures will be damaging to small businesses, the EFF says the company's argument is "laughable."
The EFF goes on to say that Facebook's business model actually requires businesses to be "sneaky and adverse to their own customers."
Apple has also responded to the Facebook ads, saying that its new privacy measures give consumers the choices that they fundamentally deserve.
