Facebook Whistleblower Frances Haugen testifies before Senate Commerce Committee

The Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Data Security held testimony from Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, focusing on the potential harms posed to children by social media platforms. Haugen released tens of thousands of pages of leaked internal documents, which she contends show how Facebook has been negligent toward the harm it causes. The hearing covered Facebook’s research into the impacts of its apps on young audiences and its handling of data of children and other users.
