Facebook had problems with Apple over a controversial data collection application used by the social network for market research, and this could affect Facebook’s ability to test other applications internally.

 

Facebook paid people aged 13 to 35 to $ 20 a month along with a fee to download an application that allows the company to access the user’s phone and Web activity as part of market research.

 

This program allows Facebook to access user data, Including web searches, site data, and private messages.

 

On Wednesday, Apple blocked Facebook from introducing Research to iPhone users.

 

Facebook avoided Apple’s review of consumer applications through a program that allow companies to create applications for their employees to use and test.

 

“We have designed the enterprise developers’ program only for the internal distribution of applications within the enterprise, but Facebook uses its membership to distribute an application to collect data on consumers, which is a clear breach of their agreement with Apple,” Apple said in an e-mailed statement.
