Mark Zuckerberg Denies Claims That Facebook Puts Profits Before People | EWTN News Nightly

Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has denied claims by a former employee that the social media giant puts profits before people. Former Facebook data scientist, Frances Haugen, told lawmakers that the company is hiding from the public how much their platforms harm children and promote hate. Senior Policy Director at the Conservative Partnership Institute and Senior Tech Columnist for the Federalist, Rachel Bovard, shares her takeaways from Haugan's testimony and whether facts support Mark Zuckerberg's claims. Bovard discusses the harm Facebook and its other platforms cause to teenage girls, both on their physical and mental health. The senior policy director tells us what she thinks Haugan's testimony revealed and what steps lawmakers should take next. During the Senate hearing, both Republicans and Democrats appeared united in their concern over the influence of social media platforms. Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal demanded Zuckerberg testify before lawmakers. Bovard talks about that and what she thinks will happen next. Bovard also gives us insight into why Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were down for 6 hours on Monday. On another note, there have been reports that the federal government now wants Google to hand over user data on people typing certain search criteria. The senior tech columnist for the Federalist fills us in on that and what they are looking for.
