Facebook data collection justified | Phishing Forensics

Vice President of Facebook, Andrew Bosworth justifies data collection methods as central to its grand goal of connecting people to each other. The real question that arises from this.. is this their true motivation?

According the relevant Buzz Feed report, Bosworth (known as Boz) wrote about his justification in a memo labeled “The Ugly”.

“The ugly truth is that we believe in connecting people so deeply that anything that allows us to connect more people more often is *de facto* good. It is perhaps the only area where the metrics do tell the true story as far as we are concerned,” continuing the memo he wrote “That isn’t something we are doing for ourselves. Or for our stock price (ha!). It is literally just what we do. We connect people. Period.”

“that’s why all the work we do in growth is justified. All the questionable contact importing practices. All the subtle language that helps people stay searchable by friends. All of the work we do to bring more communication in. The work we will likely have to do in China some day. All of it.” he noted.

This memo has appeared as Facebook attempts to regain the trust of its users after data from around 50 million American Facebook accounts was harvested without consent by Cambridge Analytica.
