Congressional Briefing — FACEBOOK PLATFORMS HATE IN INDIA: HAUGEN REVELATIONS
Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen has exposed how Facebook enabled the exponential spread of hate speech and violence against India’s religious minorities, especially Muslims.
Panelists at the Briefing shine a light on how Haugen’s leaks confirm what Indian civil society actors have been saying for years: that Facebook’s failure to take hate speech seriously, and its complicity in the spread of disinformation and calls to violence, have led to violence in India.
