Ms Frances Haugen who once worked with Facebook as a product manager have given evidence to United States politicians in the Senate on Tuesday, just hours after leaking internal company documents of Facebook to media giant, Wall Street Journal, WSJ. She leaked the document hours before the company’s biggest outage that lasted for six hours. Read more WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook down, thousands of users can’t have access
“I’m sure many of you have found the recent coverage hard to read because it just doesn’t reflect the company we know. We care deeply about issues like safety, well being and mental health. It is difficult to see coverage that misrepresents our work and our motives” Mark added.
