Seems Apple revoked Facebook Enterprise program certificate. This means Facebook can't distribute apps internally to its employees. From outside it seems serious. Is it really a serious issue?

    This is such a low blow from apple. I guess to take attention away from the FaceTime bug. It's an internal app used by the employees and the research app that they are talking about declares everything to folks who choose to share their data for money. Frankly, this is apple being an asshole and nothing else.

      Well they also blocked the internal app that is limited to just the emoloyees and sits on company provided phones. And apple also lets other apps collect and sell user data. Just read about it. I am not against any company enforcing policies, the problem is with doing that selectively.

      @Inkling Systems did the user consent to it? If yes, then where is the problem. And only 5 percent if those getting paid to share data are under 19.

      Apple has made full use of the Facebook issues by declaring itself a privacy champion and creating a whole marketing program around it. Most of which is bullshit. Dig deep and you ll find the issues. Does not need much research, just Google search.

      If they're using their enterprise cert to publish an app externally, then they're violating the stated policy. And guess what - when the enterprise cert being abused was yanked, the internal apps went down, too. I don't see what's so hard to grok about this situation.

      FUD "Apple intentionally blocking internal apps" FUD FUD blah blah. Go away.

      It’s blatantly violating the intent and terms of using an enterprise profile on iOS. Plain and simple. If Facebook wasn’t incorrectly using these profiles then there wouldn’t be a problem.

    FB is between a rock and a hard place of their own doing. Their users are predominantly on Android, while their employees like iOS. Google is effectively a nemesis, but Apple actually enforces rules that exploit users and violate terms.

    They don't have any good choices and I sure hope to see Apple and users sue Facebook for their misdeeds.

      Do you even know what this is about? Apple is not the saint you believe it is.

      You don’t have to be a saint to not want people to violate your rules.

      You speed, doesn’t mean you want people to shit on your lawn.

      Apple is not a saint, but sure as hell more trustworthy/respectable than Facebook, because it doesn't exploit user's data as its sole business model. Also, wtf is velocity??

      Lol @Uxbnuj why attacking me for where I work. When did I say I work for FB or attacked some one personally. Stop being a douchebag. If you are genuinly curios, just search.

    I hope Apple revoked Google's certificate too, given they were doing exactly the same thing.

      Nope. Google actually apologized and removed their app.
