How 'The Facebook Files' impact teens and their future as adults.
FACEBOOK FILES: THEY CONTINUE TO IMPACT SOCIETY'S YOUNGEST AND MOST VULNERABLE CITIZENS!
The Facebook Files reveals much more harms than teen mental health. Young people spend over 5 hours a day reading information that is not fact-checked and could be polarizing. This week, the famous whistle-blower Frances Haugen testified in Europe, saying Facebook is secretive about issues on its massive platforms. She asked policymakers to create dynamic regulations that could keep young people safe in a rapidly evolving technology landscape.
She continues her education of world leaders, strongly advocating for changes to Facebook globally. In her recent testimony to the UK Parliament, Frances highlighted systemic issues of regulating Facebook and Instagram.
She was greeted with a warm welcome at the European Parliament, whose members stated firmly that her whistle-blower actions on Facebook's inner workings will affect their work regulating the tech industry.
