Whistleblower Frances Haugen has told UK members of parliament Facebook is “unquestionably making hate worse”, as they consider what new rules to impose on big social networks.

Ms Haugen was talking to the Online Safety Bill committee in London.

She said Facebook safety teams were under-resourced, and “Facebook has been unwilling to accept even little slivers of profit being sacrificed for safety”.

And she warned that Instagram was “more dangerous than other forms of social media”.

If Facebook can’t root out dangerous anti-social media on its own platforms, can anyone?

Newsnight’s Sima Kotecha reports. Faisal Islam is joined by former Facebook director of policy for Europe Lord Allan, former Facebook whistleblower Sophie Zhang and former culture minister Lord Vaizey.

    You don't need a whistle-blower to find out that FB is spreading hate, that's the whole point of the the platform! It's constant confrontation, that is how they get people to use it. "Does pineapple belong on pizza?"
    It goes the same with the useless crap on TV as well. It's all confrontation and competition, hence the word WAR being in most titles. The main problem with the TV Crisis is the tremendous amount of stupid and ever increasing people that watch this crap!!!!!!!! And the people on social media that are constantly rambling on about freedoms are the same people that answer the security/ phising questions like what was your first pets name…………..

    I agree with what she is saying, Facebook provides platform for hate and extremism.

  6. Scripted says:

    Facebook and all these kind of sites need taking down. Not only is it a platform for racial abuse, trolling and grooming but it is also supposed to bring people closer together when in fact it pushes people further apart . Facebook it seems is not without a sense of irony.

    The trouble is , as we are seeing now, dangerous content can be content that is not towing the party line. This is censorship and we have it already on Facebook and apparently you tube as well. Who decides how dangerous, in what way and to whom?

  16. PAVLOVS WORLD says:

    I have nothing against facebook but facebook is making people ignorant by sharing always the same type of content to its customers.. If I have a certain interest or political view and facebook keeps providing me this type of content.. if I use facebook too much I will become used to the same type of information and the same type of political views.. To be honest my facebook newsfeed keeps sending me depressing and sad information as well as adds..I wonder if this is part of their game to keep people depressed using their platforms..:/

    If one is not feeling happy not using FB, then best for those to leave it and just let those strong enough to handle filtering the BS while using it in it remain in there. They have said the same thing about TV decades ago spewing junk into the minds of kids. COVID awareness, girls not being able to go to school in Afghanistan are way worthy advocacies to espouse.

    Also people spread hate on fib while they use Twitter the biggest hating platform of all…. But even then I use even Twitter for love feeds n to spread love n I also filter my feeds n spread truth n love on fab n surround self with only those types of ppl
    Social media is what you make it
    Sadly you can’t do the same for YouTube all you can do is mute your comment notification
    Although now I know how to handle trolls you just say
    “Whatever” n leave it at that
    My only block now on YouTube

  31. Stop Cyberbullying Save lives says:

    Facebook has a block
    YouTube does not
    Facebook has an age restriction n name as evidence
    YouTube does not
    If you want to post about Facebook n cyber bullying clearly you are blinded to YouTube n how much cyber bullying n hate is being spread here n also how much YouTube is doing nothing whatsoever about it
