More problems for Facebook.
A second Facebook whistleblower is now coming forward.
The documents have been shared with a US law agency.
NEW 🚨 A second Facebook whistleblower Sophie Zhang says she's willing to testify before Congress and that she's shared documents with a US law agency
— Insider Paper (@TheInsiderPaper) October 13, 2021
Sophie Zhang, who said she felt like she had “blood on her hands” after working at Facebook, is willing to testify before Congress about her former employer, she told CNN Sunday. She said she had also passed on documentation about the company to a US law enforcement agency.
Zhang, who worked as a data scientist at the tech giant for almost three years, wrote a lengthy memo when she was fired by Facebook last year detailing how she believed the company was not doing enough to tackle hate and misinformation — particularly in smaller and developing countries. Zhang said the company told her she was fired because of performance issues.
The memo was first reported last year by BuzzFeed News and later helped form the basis of a series of reports by The Guardian newspaper.
Speaking to CNN at her home in the Bay Area on Sunday, Zhang said she was encouraged that there appeared to be bipartisan support for action relating to the protection of children online following Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen’s testimony to a Senate subcommittee last week.
Zhang said she has brought information about Facebook to authorities. “I provided detailed documentation regarding potential criminal violations to a U.S. law enforcement agency. My understanding is that the investigation is still ongoing,” she tweeted Sunday.
The first whistleblower is a radical leftist who is pushing for more censorship on Facebook:
