Facebook Whistleblower Frances Haugen Joins Jill Biden at State of the Union Address

The White House announced Tuesday that Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen will be one of the guests of First Lady Jill Biden during President Biden’s first official State of the Union address.

Haugen, a former product manager in Facebook’s social integrity group, leaked a large number of internal Facebook documents to The Wall Street Journal last year that showed widespread problems within the company. She testified before Congress that Facebook “repeatedly” misled the public about “what its own research reveals about child safety and the effectiveness of its artificial intelligence systems as a role in spreading divisiveness and extreme messaging.”

The White House release calls Haugen a “specialist in algorithmic product management” and an “advocate for greater humanity and transparency in the tech and social media industry, especially when it comes to teen mental health.”

During his first State of the Union address, Biden is expected to speak about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, inflation and global supply problems. The first lady’s guest list at the event will also include Oksana Markarova, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Pittsburgh steelworker Joseph Burgess, Pat Gelsinger, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger, and Virginia seventh-grader Joshua Davis, a diabetic who has called for legislation to make school safer for children with type 1 diabetes.
