Kirsty chats with Frances Haugen, the woman who leaked internal documents that demonstrated a lack of empathy and care from Facebook executives about the impact that its products were having, particularly on young women and girls.
Facebook has since changed its name to Meta, but its suite of products is the same: Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are visited by billions of people globally, every day.
Frances is a big thinker: she wants to be part of the story that changes the narrative around social media to a more inclusive, positive digital environment for everyone.
Frances and Kirsty will continue this conversation on Friday 16 December, at 10:00 am when they discuss making social media accountable and transparent in a climate of misinformation in the digital age. Registration for this Zoom session is essential.
