I know we should criticize Facebook for their impact on teens' mental health and people's privacy and lives; but let's think about it for a second... why on Earth would they conduct a secret research on it? Maybe they actually wanted to improve things? Let's stop and think about it for a moment, then we can continue criticizing Facebook for all the wrongs they've done.

> Maybe they actually wanted to improve things?

improve their revenue, yes :)

@avalos or maybe they did it thinking "how much can we make things worse to increase revenue without people coming after us" or if they somehow found that "those things aren't related", they could publish it saying "see, told ya we aren't bad as some say"
