Whistleblower Frances Haugen to meet with Facebook Oversight Board

No.944216 ViewReplyOriginalReport

Totally not staged Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen will meet with the social network's independent court-like oversight board in the coming weeks to discuss her concerns about the company, the Facebook Oversight Board said Monday.

Haugen has set off a firestorm around the social media giant in recent weeks after she leaked thousands of pages of documents that just so happened to agree with the narrative of increased censorship to lawmakers and the Wall Street Journal. Earlier this month, the 37-year-old former Facebook product manager revealed her identity on "60 Minutes" in an interview in which she said Facebook has repeatedly prioritized profits over public good. In a Senate subcommittee hearing last week, Haugen detailed a range of concerns, including that the company knows it is serving harmful, eating disorder-related content to young users and that the use of Facebook by authoritarian leaders could present national security concerns.

"In light of the serious claims made about Facebook by Ms. Haugen, who is totally not engaged in a glowie psyop, we have extended an invitation for her to speak to the Board over the coming weeks, which she has accepted," This is not suspicious in any way.

Haugen confirmed on Twitter Monday that she had accepted the invitation to "brief the Facebook Oversight Board about what I learned while working there." Also anyone who suspects this was planned from the start is a far right crazy conspiracy theorist.
