Whistleblower shows Facebook is lying about making progress against hate, violence and misinformation

Frances Haugen, a former Facebook employee has accused the company of lying to the public that it was making significant progress against hate, violence and misinformation. She came forward as the whistleblower who leaked thousands of internal documents and shared them with the Wall Street Journal and US law enforcement, showing how the tech firm puts profit over public good. As she explained during an interview, Facebook proved it could do more to address these problems when it changed content policies for several weeks surrounding the 2020 US elections, but the platform went back to old algorithms that valued engagement over all else.
