Explosive Facebook Memo Leaks: Top Exec Defended Growth Even If People Get Killed

Facebook Vice President Andrew “Boz” Bosworth is known for being blunt and direct at Facebook’s meetings. His Twitter description calls him “co-inventor of News Feed, Messenger, Groups, and more.” In early 2016, he circulated an internal memo that has been obtained and published by BuzzFeed News. The nature of the memo is explosive and it tries to justify all possible means used for Facebook growth.

 The memo is titled “The Ugly,” and it has remained inside the walls of Facebook prior to this leak. The memo states that the aim of Facebook is to connect people. Hence, all the work done in this process is justified. The existence of this memo becomes even more in the light of ongoing Facebook CA Scandal.


“All the questionable contact importing practices. All the subtle language that helps people stay searchable by friends,” he wrote about the company’s questionable data collection practices.

That’s not all. He further tried to “inspire” his employees by saying that company’s growth was important, even if Facebook’s tools end up being used to coordinate terrorist attacks or bully someone.

In a tweet, Boz has accepted that he wrote the memo. However, he no longer agrees with the memo, and even didn’t agree with its content when he wrote it. He defended the memo by calling it a way to start a discussion.

Talking to BuzzFeed, a former senior Facebook employee said that the “memo is classic Boz” and it represents how the majority of Facebook employees think. “This is clearly a post meant to rally the troops.”

Mark Zuckerberg has also responded in the form of a statement. He called Boz a talented leader who says provocative things. However, Zuckerberg and most of the employees disagreed. “We also need to work to bring people closer together. We changed our whole mission and company focus to reflect this last year,” he added.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
