26 Jul Facebook’s Outgoing Security Criticizes Company in Internal Memo
It was recently reported that Facebook’s outgoing security chief, Alex Stamos, had sent a memo in March that criticized the social network’s privacy issues.
Stamos had asked the company to “intentionally not collect data where possible, and to keep it only as long as we are using it to serve people.”
Stamos also implored Facebook to “listen to users and its employees” when they say a feature is creepy or if the social network is doing something that makes a negative impact in the world. He also argued that short-term growth and revenue should be deprioritized, and urged the company to be willing to pick sides when there are clear moral or humanitarian issues.
