Hard blow for Facebook: the former IT engineer of the social network speaks (confesses)

Facebook “understands that if they change the algorithm to be safer, people will spend less time on the site, click fewer ads and earn less” – Facebook has put “profits above safety” of the public. The words of mole Frances Haugen, the former employee who plunged Zuckerberg’s company into its deepest crisis since Cambridge Analytics, are potentially devastating. In an interview with ’60 Minutes’ on CBS, she tells that she too presented complaints to the Sec, the American Consob, in which she accuses the social network of having hidden her research and her studies from investors and the public. The 37-year-old, brave and very knowledgeable. she is also the key source for the Wall Street Journal’s Facebook Files project. She has worked for several social networks, but on Facebook she found the situation “worst”.
Who is Frances Haugen the mole

But what did Haugen say about so explosive?

“I have repeatedly seen conflicts of interest between what was good for the public and what was good for Facebook. And each time Facebook chose what was best for its own profits,” explains Frances Haugen, who explains why she decided to become a ‘mole’ and denounce the company. Haugen is the one who provided the Wall Street Journal in recent months with internal documents that showed a hitherto unknown insight into Facebook.

“There was a security plan” and controls on hate messages and disinformation that appeared on Facebook, but “after the 2020 presidential election something has changed,” revealed Haugen, a Harvard graduate, hired in 2019 as a data engineer. The algorithms would change and the system would become “less secure”. From that moment – again according to Haugen’s version – the social platform allegedly loosened the censorship of hate messages and the contents that misinformed about the electoral result, eventually favoring the dissemination of messages on alleged fraud.

Haugen came out, showing her face and drawing a disturbing picture. Today he will be in Congress for a deposition. “They thought that if they changed the algorithms to make the system more secure, people would spend less time on social media, they would click ads less,” and Facebook “would make less money,” he said. said the former employee. “They always preferred her – she added her – profit over security.”

Haugen said she decided to wage this battle because she lost a loved one to conspiracy theories circulating on social media. She was very clear in her former employer’s assessment of her. “There were conflicts of interest between what was good for the audience and what was good for Facebook,” she said. “Facebook has chosen over and over to optimize for their own interests, how to make more money.”
The impact of Instagram on teenagers

On Instagram, the engineer argued that it has a dramatic impact on the lives of teenagers: “A research carried out by Facebook – he said – says that the young women who follow content related to eating disorder, the more they follow these issues, the more they become depressed. . And this leads to using Instagram more. “

In a written note, Facebook defended itself by arguing that the company “continues to make significant improvements to counter the spread of misinformation and content that can harm people. Claiming that we encourage bad content and do nothing to stop it is not true.”

4october ’21: WhatsApp, Facebook e Instagram down

WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram down Today 4 October 2021 all the major social platforms of WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram seem to have serious problems in completing all the classic online uploading operations of the fundamental elements such as images or videos. There are tens of thousands of reports that are arriving. The problems seem to affect all three of Mark Zuckerberg’s platforms from the inability to send or receive multimedia messages on WhatsApp, to the inability to upload images or stories to Instagram. Obviously, on Twitter, the tide of messages from those wondering why this is happening immediately started, and many ironize about the malfunction just as usually happens in these cases since those who always use WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram, open Twitter only if the first two don’t work. From the two social networks for the moment no news, no comments or explanations on what is happening
