Facebook whistleblower says riots and genocides are the ‘opening chapters’ if action isn’t taken 

The Independent says The Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen has said that events such as the 6 January US Capitol riot and genocides in Myanmar and Ethopia are the “opening chapters” of worse events if action is not taken against the social media company.

Ms Haugen gave the warning while giving evidence to parliament ahead of the government’s development of an Online Harms Bill.

“Engagement-based ranking prioritises and amplifies divisive, polarising content”, Ms Haugen said, adding that the company could make non-content-based choices that would sliver off half-percentage points of growth but “Facebook is unwilling to give up those slivers for our safety”.
