In Monday's premarket, Facebook shares fell 0.5% as a series of investigations in The Washington Post last week backed up whistleblower Frances Haugen's assertions that the social media behemoth prioritizes business before user safety.
According to the Washington Post, a new unnamed whistleblower has identified examples of Facebook officials' nonchalant attitude toward congressional investigations.
According to another WaPo investigation published today, during the Communist Party of Vietnam's convention in January, Facebook drastically increased censoring of "anti-state" remarks. According to the article, Zuckerberg concluded that Facebook will comply with Hanoi's demands.
The business tried to justify the censoring in Vietnam in a statement to the Post, saying it was "to ensure our services remain available for millions of individuals who rely on them every day."
Facebook's 'Internet.org' effort, which was originally billed as aiding the under-connected in the digital era, was part of a larger strategy to become the main source of news in developing countries.
The fresh allegations add to Facebook's woes, which include tales of users abandoning the network and advertising income being harmed by Apple's privacy measures. While there are still financial concerns, the corporation has also been accused of neglecting its own internal studies when it claimed that its Instagram platform is harmful to females.
