Facebook Whistleblower Testifies About Company’s Harms Amid Leak Fallout

Frances Haugen’s claims are backed by tens of thousands of pages of internal research from the social networking giant.

Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen is testifying before Congress Tuesday, where she’s expected to tell a Senate subcommittee how the social media giant puts “profits before people.”

Haugen’s claims are supported by tens of thousands of pages of internal Facebook research, which she previously provided to the Wall Street Journal.

The paper used them to inform a series of highly damaging articles about Facebook, alleging that, among other things, the company knew Instagram was “toxic” for teenagers even as it pursued strategies to sign up younger and younger children.

In her opening statement, Haugen urged Congress to regulate Facebook, comparing the company to Big Tobacco, which for decades hid research about its products’ true harm.

“The documents I have provided to Congress prove that Facebook has repeatedly misled the public about what its own research reveals about the safety of children, the efficacy of its artificial intelligence systems, and its role in spreading divisive and extreme messages,” Haugen said.

“I came forward because I believe that every human being deserves the dignity of the truth.”
