Frances Haugen, the former product manager of Facebook, is going to testify in the British Parliament after the US Senate. He will appear before the ‘Online Safety Bill’ committee of the British Parliament on October 25.
The internal document leaker of Facebook wants to highlight the fact that the most influential social media in the world gives more importance to making profit than the safety of the user.
The ‘Online Safety Bill’ committee is considering a law proposal to force social media organizations to ensure the safety of online users. The safety of children online is getting more importance to that committee.
Damien Collins, head of the committee responsible for drafting the allegations, said the information Haugen has provided so far emphasizes the need for independent regulators to monitor and inspect the activities of large technology companies. More transparency is needed on how organizations like Facebook can offer user security discounts for engagement.
However, several Facebook officials have denied Haugen’s claim that he was “misrepresenting” them with “stolen documents”.
