A Facebook leaked memo has landed the company in hot water once again, as it suggests that the company values business over user safety.

A Facebook leaked memo from an executive in the company was published by BuzzFeed on Thursday.

The Facebook leaked memo stated that Bosworth wanted to “talk about the ugly” regarding the company’s work – and it appears from the content within that the content was quite ugly indeed.

An excerpt from the memo reads “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.”
