Mark Zuckerberg Says Facebook And Google Aren’t On Speaking Terms
The tech world isn’t all fun and games, and the billionaires who run the largest companies aren’t all buddy-buddy, as we’ve seen from the Apple/Google dispute over the years. Now, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg also apparently has issues with Google.
During a conference call announcing Facebook’s fourth quarter financial earnings, Zuckerberg threw some shots at Google.
“Android is a very dynamic and open platform — as long as Google keeps it that way,” said Zuckerberg.
“Our relationship isn’t one where the companies really talk.”
On the other hand, Zuckerberg praised Apple for its “more locked-down system,” saying that “they’ve been a great partner for us so far.”
Facebook and Google have clashed before, especially over Facebook’s decision to use Google’s rival, Bing, as the primary search engine within the site.
The tech wars look like they may get bloody in 2013.
