This is a prototype opt-in panel @Apple plans to show users for every app (not just @Facebook) that wishes to track users. It merely allows users to choose whether or not to okay tracking. So, if FB tracking is fair, open and helpful, why is it so afraid of this pop-up? pic.twitter.com/5XBxSOfUsG

The social network giant’s claim is misleading since the free content-based business model will soon vanish anyway. Many businesses either charge their clients for access (subscription-based) or sell their products or services directly to consumers.
Facebook chose to fight Apple instead of trying to adapt its business model. Many experts suggest that the social network giant will probably lose its battle against Apple as a result of its action.
