Facebook's mission of "connecting people" justifies aggressive "growth tactics" and even collateral deaths, Facebook vice president Andrew “Boz” Bosworth wrote in a 2016 memo, BuzzFeed reports.

Key quote: "So we connect more people. That can be bad if they make it negative. 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."
