Facebook is facing a tsunami of criticism following the leak of an explosive memo revealing the tech giant’s lack of concern for people dying thanks to the tools it offers to users. Now, one Democrat Senator thinks it could be time to unleash regulators on Facebook.

Daily Caller reports:

“Democratic Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts threatened to devise and enact regulations on social media after finding out a Facebook executive published a memo appearing to express insensitivity over its effects.

“So we connect more people,” Facebook Vice President Bosworth wrote in a company wide message in 2016, which BuzzFeed recently published. “That can be bad if they make it negative. Maybe it costs someone a life by exposing someone to bullies. Maybe someone dies in a terrorist attack coordinated on our tools.” […]

Bosworth’s memo continued:

“The ugly truth is that we believe in connecting people so deeply that anything that allows us to connect more people more often is *de facto* good. It is perhaps the only area where the metrics do tell the true story as far as we are concerned. That isn’t something we are doing for ourselves. Or for our stock price (ha!). It is literally just what we do. We connect people. Period.

Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) then threatened to unleash regulators on Facebook.
