Apple Finally does something about Facebook

I am sure this is going to be the first of a few of these blocks. Google next and then maybe Microsoft too.

According to Macrumors


Google has been privately inviting users aged 18 and up (or 13 for those part of a family group) to download Screenwise Meter, an app that is designed to collect information on internet usage, including details on how long a site is visited to apps that are downloaded.

By asking Screenwise Meter users to download the app using an enterprise certificate, Google is able to bypass App Store rules that prevent apps from gathering this kind of data from iPhone users.

Apple just this morning revoked Facebook’s enterprise certificate for this exact same activity, which has rendered all of Facebook’s internal apps nonoperational and has created chaos at Facebook’s headquarters. Facebook employees are not able to use any of the internal apps that they rely on to get work done.
