The Facebook documents paint a picture of a company that is totally ruthless about making money.




They show that Facebook was prepared to stamp on rivals, cut data deals, make decisions that generate bad press, and obsessively track competitors as acquisition targets — all in the name of growth.




It's a timely reminder that Facebook is a money-making juggernaut, not a philanthropic endeavour.



If you take one thing away from wading through 250 pages of Facebook documents, it is this: Here is a company that is totally ruthless about growth.
This shouldn't be a surprise, of course. You don't get to 2.3 billion users and revenues of $40 billion by playing nice all the time. But rarely do we see the inner workings of a company out to make money laid bare in such detail.
The documents, seized by British parliamentarians and published in a redacted form on Wednesday, don't contain a catastrophic bombshell, but they do call to mind a barb slung at Facebook earlier this year.
