Meanwhile, U.S Senators has demanded that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg answer questions after whistleblower’s revelations at hearing.

“I will simply say this to Mr. Stone: If Facebook wants to discuss their targeting of children, if they want to discuss their practices, privacy invasion or violations of the children online privacy act, I am extending to you an invitation to step forward, be sworn in and testify before this committee,” Blackburn said. “We would be pleased to hear from you and welcome your testimony.”
Sen. Ed Markey, another senator, congratulated Haugen for coming out, calling her a “21st-century American hero” and stating that the committee is pursuing Zuckerberg.
“Here’s what I’d like to say to Mark Zuckerberg:
Your time of invading our privacy, promoting toxic content and preying on children and teens is over,” Markey said. “We will not allow your company to harm our children and our families and our democracy any longer.”
