  • Project Liberty collaborated with Meta Platforms Inc (NASDAQ:META) Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen’s “Beyond The Screen” nonprofit marking a new, open-source effort to hold social networking platforms accountable for harmful practices. 
  • This “Duty of Care” initiative will pool expertise from nonprofit leaders, academics, litigators, and technologists who study the harms created and exacerbated by social media.
  • The new group appears to build on the solutions Haugen proposed to lawmakers and social media companies about how to make platforms safer, based partly on her experience as a former product manager on Facebook’s civic misinformation team, CNBC reports.
  • “Beyond the Screen” will start by creating an open-source database of ways “Big Tech is failing in its legal and ethical obligations to society.”
  • Haugen had leaked internal documents suggesting Facebook’s harmful effects on children and teens, varied content moderation standards, and even called for CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s resignation. She also testified before Congress.
  • Haugen backed Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) chief Elon Musk’s plans to take Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) private.
  • Price Action: META shares traded higher by 1.46% at $144.24 on the last check Thursday.
