Facebook is famous for the mantra "move fast and break things." But these days, the tech giant is all about time well spent, and with that comes a new tagline for everyone to follow:
If you don't like us, leave.
That's what Facebook executives Campbell Brown and Adam Mosseri stressed on Monday during their onstage grilling at Recode's Code Media conference.
Brown said three separate times in the 50-minute conversation that publishers and businesses should feel free to leave Facebook if they feel the social network isn't working for them.
"If anyone feels that this isn't the right platform for them, then they should not be on Facebook," Brown said.
The company's Head of News also insisted that "people don't come to Facebook for news," even though studies show the majority of adults in the U.S. get news on Facebook. "They come to Facebook for friends and family," she said, echoing Facebook's latest PR blitz meant to dampen criticism of News Feed.
