Facebook whistleblower to appear before UK Parliament
Frances Haugen, the Facebook whistleblower who accuses the technology giant of putting profit ahead of safety, will give evidence to the UK Parliament later this month.
Ms Haugen will appear before the Online Safety Bill committee on 25 October.
It is examining a law to impose obligations on social-media companies to protect users, especially children.
Ms Haugen alleges Facebook harms children’s mental health and stokes division in society.
Facebook firmly denies any such allegations, with boss Mark Zuckerberg labelling them “illogical”.
