Facebook accuser launches non-profit organization

Accuser Frances Haugen – a former Facebook engineer who leaked documents showing that the company put profits before security – on Thursday established an organization to fight the damage caused by the social network caused by association.

The new nonprofit Beyond the Screen says its first project will document how big tech is failing its "legal and ethical obligations to society" and help fix those problems..

"We can have social media that brings out the best in us, and that's what Beyond the Screen is all about," Haugen said.

"Beyond the Screen will focus on tangible solutions to help users take control of our social media experience."

Last year, Haugen leaked a study within the suite that showed administrators knew their websites were potentially dangerous, prompting the United States to push for new regulations.

Haugen argues that the tech giant, which has since changed its name to Meta, puts profits above safety. Meta has resisted the accusations.

Haugen's nonprofit said it will partner with groups including Common Sense Media and Project Liberty that share a "commitment to supporting healthy social media."

According to a statement by Beyond the Screen, Beyond the Screen's first project "represents a bold, comprehensive, and much-needed effort to drive seismic change in the way social media works."

“ພວກເຮົາຫວັງວ່າຈະໄດ້ເຮັດວຽກຮ່ວມກັບ Frances ແລະທີມງານຂອງນາງເພື່ອເປີດຕົວການລິເລີ່ມໃຫມ່ນີ້ແລະກ້າວຫນ້າເປົ້າຫມາຍຮ່ວມກັນຂອງພວກເຮົາໃນການເຮັດໃຫ້ຊຸມຊົນດິຈິຕອນທີ່ມີສຸຂະພາບດີແລະປ້ອງກັນຮູບແບບທຸລະກິດທີ່ເປັນອັນຕະລາຍ.”

Since leaving Facebook in 2021, Haugen has advocated in the United States and other countries for legislation aimed at making social media platforms safer, especially for young people.
