Instagram CEO calls for an industry body to keep kids safe online during in to US Senate | FULL

CA, 09 Dec 2021
The CEO of Facebook’s Instagram is set to testify on Wednesday afternoon before the U.S. Senate.

Lawmakers are angry over revelations of how the popular photo-sharing platform can harm some young users and demand that the company commits to making changes.

Adam Mosseri is testifying at a Senate hearing as Facebook, whose parent now is named Meta Platforms, has been roiled by public and political outrage over the disclosures by former Facebook employee Frances Haugen. She has made the case before lawmakers in the U.S., Britain and Europe that Facebook’s systems amplify online hate and extremism and that the company elevates profits over the safety of users.

Haugen, a data scientist who had worked in Facebook’s civic integrity unit, buttressed her assertions with a massive trove of internal company documents she secretly copied and provided to federal securities regulators and Congress.
