Facebook “Whistleblower” Francis Hogan (Frances
Haugen) pointed out to British MPs on Monday, “In the company, people who are willing to turn a blind eye are more likely to be promoted than those who warn.” She said, “The vast majority of Facebook employees are conscientious, kind, and compassionate. People. However, putting these good people in an environment of’negative incentives’ will lead to some bad behaviors.”
At the invitation of the British Parliament, Hogan went to the UK to testify on October 25. She testified that Facebook tends to promote those who “turn a blind eye” to the company’s problems. Moreover, Facebook has always put “profits above user safety.”
Hoogen also said that Facebook insists on the office culture of start-ups, but this culture no longer works. He said: “There is a culture that advocates a kind of entrepreneurial ethics. This kind of thinking believes that it is good to be able to change the measurement standard by cutting corners. In my opinion, this is irresponsible.”
Haugen said: “Facebook executives all have one thing in common, that is: Facebook may be the only job they have ever done. Mark Zuckerberg founded the company at the age of 19 and is still the CEO. There are many vice presidents or directors, and Facebook is their only job.”
Last month, some media disclosed a number of internal Facebook documents, including research reports, employee discussions, and senior management reports, revealing various “crimes” of Facebook. The exposer of the content of these reports is Haogen, who has worked at Facebook for two years. The report allowed lawmakers to re-express their concerns about Facebook.
In addition to the British Parliament, EU legislators also invited Haogen to participate in the hearing on November 8. Earlier this month, Haugen testified before a subcommittee of the Senate Commerce Committee.
