Tim Cook wrote something similar in September in a statement spelling out Apple’s privacy policy:

“When an online service is free, you’re not the customer. You’re the product.” The shot was probably meant for Google, but Facebook was definitely in the blast radius. “A frustration I have is that a lot of people increasingly seem to equate an advertising business model with somehow being out of alignment with your customers,” Zuckerberg says. “I think it’s the most ridiculous concept. What, you think because you’re paying Apple that you’re somehow in alignment with them? If you were in alignment with them, then they’d make their products a lot cheaper!”

Zuckerberg says: “Our mission is to connect every person in the world. You don’t do that by having a service people pay for.”

He mentioned that the users of Facebook are already paying with their attention and the personal information instead of cash.
