The Facebook Papers is a collaborative reporting effort from 17 American news outlets that worked together to gain access to thousands of pages of internal company documents obtained by Frances Haugen, the former Facebook product manager who is now known as the company’s whistleblower.
The papers are redacted versions of disclosures made by whistleblower Frances Haugen to the SEC, alleging Facebook was prioritizing profits over safety and hiding its own research from investors and the public.
Facebook employees repeatedly flagged misinformation and inflammatory content about the U.S. election, though leadership has publicly placed the blame elsewhere. Documents obtained by The New York Times give new insight into what went on behind the scenes.

PyrateSilly Facebook is a business so it makes sense that they would prioritize profits … that being said, as a company they should have safeguards in place to keep their patrons safe in order to better keep said patrons for a longer period of time.
Amy Here is an example on why Facebook is trying to change its name. IMO I knew a company that did it so they couldn’t be held responsible or sued for wrongdoing because the former co name doesn’t exist anymore. They a get brand new start.
