Facebook data distributor Francis Hougen was busy on a crusade to declare his former employer a “moral bankruptcy”.

Haugen on Monday announced plans to meet with EU and UK lawmakers, as well as Facebook’s supervisory board.

His meeting with Facebook’s supervisory board — a group described as the company’s “Supreme Court” and allegedly authorized to overturn Mark Zuckerberg on content control issues — will take place in the next few weeks. Monday.

“Board members appreciate the opportunity to discuss Ms. Hougen’s experiences and gather information from Facebook that will help increase transparency and accountability,” the board said.

The point is, the impact of social media on users.

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Hougen told the Wall Street Journal that he conducted Facebook’s internal investigation and urged lawmakers to regulate the technology giant during a U.S. Senate testimony last week – he will also speak to the UK Parliamentary Committee on October 25.

The committee is currently reviewing a security bill that would revise the moderation rules and expose companies to harmful content.

Haugen tweeted about his upcoming Facebook briefing on Monday.

“Companies like Facebook need to ensure the safety of their users and the transparency of the decisions they make in order to stay in touch with users,” said Damian Collins, a conservative lawmaker and committee chairman.

Two weeks after meeting with British lawmakers, Hoagen will travel to the European Parliament on November 8, where he will talk about “the negative impact of the products of major technology companies on consumers.”

The European Parliament is also considering legislation that would strengthen the fight against monopolies and require Facebook to crack down harder on illegal content.

Hoagen will also meet with the European Parliament, which is considering ways to regulate Facebook.

“An open hearing with Francis Hougen enriches the democratic speech and our legislative work in the relevant committees,” said Anna Kavazzini, chairwoman of the committee, a member of the German Green Party, who testified to Haugen. “The EU is on the right track to combat hate speech and misinformation on the Internet by appealing to business models that use algorithms to sell more advertising, even if it has a detrimental effect on society.”
