Facebook (NASDAQ: META ) whistleblower Frances Haugen announced on Thursday that she is creating a non-profit organization that will seek solutions to the harm created by social media.
The former product manager at Facebook, now called Meta Platforms, made headlines last year after coming to light as the source of thousands of leaked internal documents she said detailed the company’s failures to protect users. teens on Instagram and take action against vaccine misinformation.
Facebook has always said that it does not agree with the vision of the company that Haugen offers.
His nonprofit organization, Beyond the Screen, will create an open database to document the ways big tech companies fail to meet their “ethical obligations to society” and outline possible solutions, according to a press release.
It will partner with Project Liberty, an organization working to create a new operating protocol for social media, and Common Sense Media, which advocates for safe media content for children.
