San Francisco: Dismissing a media report that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg ordered his management team to use only Android phones after his tiff with Apple CEO Tim Cook. On Thursday, the social media network said the decision to use Android is because it is the most popular operating system in the world.

"Tim Cook has constantly criticised our business model and Zuckerberg has been similarly clear that he disagrees. There has been no need to employ anyone else to do this for us," Facebook said. "And we've long encouraged our employees and executives to use Android because it is the most popular operating system in the world," the social networking giant added.

On Wednesday The New York Times said that "after Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive, quipped in an interview that his company did not traffic in personal data, Mr Zuckerberg ordered his management team to use only Android phones". In a statement on Thursday, Facebook said Zuckerberg's disagreement with Cook is only over the business model.

Reacting to Cook's remarks, Zuckerberg told his remarks about the social networking giant were "extremely glib".
