Custom Audiences launched in 2012 as a way for companies to upload lists of customer email addresses or phone numbers so advertisers could target specific people instead of broad groups.
Still, during Zuckerberg's one-hour conversation with Freakonomics Radio's Stephen Dubner, the CEO touted Facebook's commitment to user privacy and suggested that is why users feel comfortable sharing information on the platform. Some people might be wondering what they ... To the contrary, I think it's important that we don't all get Stockholm syndrome, and let the companies that work hard to charge you more convince you that they actually care more about you. The way that I design the goals for the teams is that you try to build the best experience that you can. Facebook's reckoning certainly has investors spooked; the company has lost $100 billion in market capitalization since February 2.
Zuckerberg responded in an interview with Vox, published on Monday: "I find that argument - that if you're not paying, that somehow we can't care about you - to be extremely glib and not at all aligned with the truth". The wave of criticism against FB and its founder includes remarks from Apple Inc.'s (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook, who explained last month in an interview with Recode why he believes Facebook and others should be regulated by the government on how they use consumer data.

Zuckerberg responded today that an advertising-supported business model is the only way that the service can survive because not everyone would be able to pay for Facebook if it charged a fee. "We've elected not to do that".
"I think we will dig through this hole, but it will take a few years", he said in the interview.
Cook recently said there should be increased regulation of social media and called privacy a "human right" and "a civil liberty". He said that Facebook relies on advertisers to keep the service free to everyone, including those who could not afford to pay for it.
