According to a statement against Facebook
The whistleblower fears for his safety
As a whistleblower, Francis Hougan raises serious allegations against his former boss Facebook. As a result, she and her family are under serious threat. She is not afraid of the company, but “the beneficiaries of how the system works”.
Facebook whistleblower Francis Hagen worries about his safety after going public. “What I’m most afraid of is not Facebook. There are a lot of people who benefit from the way the system works today,” Hogan said. She feared that these people would spread rumors about her and turn anyone into a terrorist. “I think someone is likely to harm me by relying on conspiracy theories about me,” the 37-year-old said. So he finds serious ideas about himself on Twitter. He also worries about his family: “I read threatening analyzes of people talking about my mom in the dark web.”
Haugen, a former Facebook employee, downloaded a large collection of internal documents and made them available to the US Congress, officials and selected media. According to him, the information shows that the group puts more profit than the well-being of its users. Internal references to developments that are harmful to users are ignored. Facebook has denied the allegation.
Hagen sees the focus after his revelations as “too much truth,” while he generally worries about his privacy. “I think people are hungry to see these systems make such a big impact on their lives.” Thank you for taking your information seriously.
The so-called whistleblower who denounces misconduct gets Haugen protection under U.S. law. Since he left Facebook in the spring, he has been living privately in his savings – which was enough for previous investments in cryptocurrency. “If not always, I could be like this for 20 years.” He is legally represented by the Whistleblower Aid organization and is grateful for the support of more than 1000 donors.
