Wall Street Journal Publishes Leaked ‘Facebook Files’ in Full

Ahead of a Senate hearing on the effect of social media on the mental health of younger users scheduled for next Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal has published in full the “Facebook Files,” internal documents showing just how much the company knew about its platforms’ impact.

Breitbart News has reported extensively on the “Facebook Files” series from the Wall Street Journal which made a number of damning claims about the tech giant based on a series of internal company documents.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the internal documents reveal that the tech giant Apple threatened to remove Facebook from its App Store in 2019 following a report from BBC News that detailed the human trafficking taking place across the social media platform.

The Wall Street Journal also claimed that Facebook’s newsfeed algorithm saw a major change in 2018 that appeared to promote outrageous and negative content on the platform. When informed of this, top executives including CEO Mark Zuckerberg were allegedly hesitant to solve the issue.
