Zuckerberg disagrees with the statement of Bosworth

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg confessed in Facebook F8 Conference, held at San Francisco, that he does not support the statement of Bosworth, a Facebook Vice President. A Facebook Inc executive said in a memo that Facebook gives importance to add users across the world, above anything else, may it be a terrorist attack or any other situation.

The memo of Andrews Bosworth, Vice President of Facebook, was not reported previously. As the question has now raised that how Facebook uses the information of users, so it has come to light now.

Zuckerberg's reaction over Bosworth's statement

However, Bosworth confirmed the authenticity of his statement but he said that his message was just simple and did not cause intentional harm to anyone. He said that the message is misused with an aim of  encouraging debate.

Response of Zuckerberg

There is already an uproar of Facebook users and others regarding the recent scandals relating to their privacy. Now another recent scandal has come to light. In this scandal, Facebook allowed Cambridge Analytica to obtain personal information of 50 million users for election purposes.

Zuckerberg said in a statement, “Boz is a talented leader who says many provocative things. This was one that most people at Facebook including myself disagreed with strongly. We’ve never believed the ends justify the means”.

Bosworth clearly stated that it is alright to undertake some questionable actions if it results in connecting the people. “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,” he wrote in the memo, which BuzzFeed published on its website. He urged his fellows not to let down by these negative views of others. These negative thoughts can never let their potential down.

“Maybe it costs a life by exposing someone to bullies. Maybe someone dies in a terrorist attack coordinated on our tools. And still we connect people,” he added.
