There are more damaging revelations swirling about Facebook as new reporting has come to light based on information from whistleblower Frances Haugen.

A consortium of news outlets, including NPR, started publishing stories late last week, including that Facebook employees did not do enough to stop people who were planning the Jan. 6 insurrection.

This comes as Facebook is expecting a less-than-stellar earnings report and tech watchers await details from the company about reports that it is changing its name to be more aligned with the so-called metaverse.

Here & Now‘s Tonya Mosley speaks with Sara Fischer, a media reporter at Axios.

Editor’s note: Facebook is a financial supporter of NPR.
