Facebook is a social network service and website, which includes business marketing but 62% of small businesses feel like their paid Facebook Ads are failing. Facebook has been highlighting the fact that the majority of its ad revenue does not come from the biggest brands. Facebook is increasing its focus on the small business community. Facebook has stated that app tracking permission of apple will make it harder for small business to place targeted ads.
Facebook often debates as in “standing up for small business” and “making sure the internet stays free,” after all it is has never made a clarification to the fact that why the users aren’t paid for the provision of the personal data on which the social media company builds its business. The current issue with Facebook is the iOS version of apple that secures the user’s permission before they can track them across apps.
Apple is best known for making some of the world’s most ubiquitous consumer devices, software, and provides the users with perfect security services. The likeness edges between Apple and Facebook as they are giant tech companies.
Apple believes privacy is a priority, Not everything is to be shared – apple helps to keep it this way. Apple’s stable drive to enrich its customers’ privacy is a benchmark against the advertising industry.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg came out with Apple as it charges highly for its devices, and Apple CEO Tim Cook making, over-exciting aimed at the social network. The most recent publicity battle wherein, Facebook distinctly said that it isn’t glad about Apple’s prohibitions on app tracking and ad targeting that is round the corner.
Tim Cook has made it clear that the users will now have a check box to enable or forbid the data collection.
“We believe users should have the choice over the data that is being collected about them and how it’s used. Facebook can continue to track users across apps and websites as before, App Tracking Transparency in iOS 14 will just require that they ask for your permission first.” the Apple CEO tweeted on Friday.
This is a colossal hitch to targeted advertisements, at the end of the day small businesses indulge in such advertising, are the hunt, said Facebook.
Usually, target advertisements bring in about 60% of sales for small businesses, But, Apple’s latest change in policy would affect small businesses’ ability to customize ads with regards to the viewers, thereby hindering the sales.
Cook made Facebook’s queries clear, that apple users can pick which apps to share their data with. This clash further drives a wedge between the two companies and their differing business models.
In the controversies of Apple vs Facebook for months, all over the place in the media sphere, Facebook should make a better understanding with Apple in its idea behind the technology that provides customers’ security services by assuring their privacy policies.
