Apple CEO Tim Cook believes it is too late for social platforms like Facebook to avoid regulation. "I think the best regulation is no regulation, is self-regulation," the exec said in an interview with Recode's Kara Swisher and MSNBC's Chris Hayes. "However, I think we're beyond that here."
Cook's comments, reported by Recode, were part of a taped interview for MSNBC's Revolution, which will air Friday, April 6. He was responding to the latest concerns over user privacy on Facebook that have emerged in the days since it was revealed Cambridge Analytica was able to obtain private data for over 50 million Facebook users.
Cook also said, "Privacy to us is a human right, a civil liberty.”
