A group of US senators is demanding that Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, hand over a large amount of emails and documents that could reveal how the company handled the knowledge that its platforms could negatively impact the mental health of teenagers. The lawmakers reference recent whistleblower testimony and unsealed allegations in a lawsuit brought by the state of Massachusetts, claiming that Meta ignored or suppressed warnings about the potential harm caused by Instagram and Facebook to young users. The senators argue that Meta's failure to prioritize user safety stems from the top leadership. Meta has responded to the allegations by stating that it has invested significantly in tools for parents and teens to control their experiences on their platforms. The company has not yet commented on the senators' letter. The letter criticizes Meta for concealing and misrepresenting its knowledge about the threats to young people on its platforms and accuses the company of disregarding young people's well-being, providing evasive answers to US lawmakers, and profiting from user safety risks. The senators request a response from Meta by November 30 and ask for the company to provide correspondence related to the warnings from the whistleblower and discussions between senior leaders and Zuckerberg regarding investments in user well-being.
