      It's completely unrealistic to expect anyone from FB replying to this thread. there's no winning here, if they say something that goes against the company line, they might get fired or get at least some crap from bosses and coworkers, and saying "it's fine" would earn them a reaming from the community. The most logical thing to do is say nothing at all.

          Sure, you're not wrong but if you were in their position would you gamble with your livelihood to make a statement?

            I hear you man, but if I chose to work at facebook as a designer then a part of that decision would be because I want to add value to the world and help people connect digitally. Sure, not all designers care about changing the world for better through the products and services they touch through design, but I hope we can agree that designers should care about their users otherwise they are just tools being used themselves by product managers to reach some BS KPI metrics to get their bonuses at the expense of humanity (trump elections anyone?)

            Also still think they are evil, put this in your pipe and smoke it: https://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/30/technology/facebook-tinkers-with-users-emotions-in-news-feed-experiment-stirring-outcry.html
