Washington Post: Inside Facebook, Jan. 6 violence fueled anger, regret over missed warning signs

Washington Post: Inside Facebook, Jan. 6 violence fueled anger, regret over missed warning signs. “Facebook has never publicly disclosed what it knows about how its platforms, including Instagram and WhatsApp, helped fuel that day’s mayhem. The company rejected its own Oversight Board’s recommendation that it study how its policies contributed to the violence and has yet to fully comply with requests for data from the congressional commission investigating the events. But thousands of pages of internal company documents disclosed to the Securities and Exchange Commission by the whistleblower Frances Haugen offer important new evidence of Facebook’s role in the events.”
