Web Facebook whistleblower goes public to accuse firm of putting profits before public good

Facebook has been accused of putting profit before the public good, by a whistleblower who’s now gone public.

Frances Haugen, who left the company earlier this year, revealed that she was behind the leak of thousands of highly controversial internal documents, which have plunged the social media giant into a public relations crisis.

As if to add to their problems, technical glitches today have put Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp out of action.
