In 2018, when Facebook recruited Haugen, she expressed interest in a role related to misinformation, and in 2019, she became a product manager in the Facebook civic integrity department.While at Facebook, she decided it was important to become a whistleblower due to what she has since described as a pattern of Facebook prioritizing profit over public safety,and left her position at Facebook in May 2021.

In the spring of 2021, she contacted John Tye, a founder of the nonprofit law firm Whistleblower Aid, for help, and Tye agreed to represent her and to help protect her anonymity.In the late summer of 2021, she began meeting with members of the United States Congress, including Senator Richard Blumenthal and Senator Marsha Blackburn.

Beginning in September 2021, The Wall Street Journal published the The Facebook Files: A Wall Street Journal Investigation, “based on a review of internal Facebook documents, including research reports, online employee discussions and drafts of presentations to senior management.

“The investigation is a multi-part series, with nine reports including an examination of exemptions for high-profile users, impacts on youth, the impacts of its 2018 algorithm changes, weaknesses in the response to human trafficking and drug cartels, vaccine misinformation, and Haugen, who gathered the documents that supported the investigative reports.

Haugen disclosed her identity as the whistleblower when she appeared on 60 Minutes on October 3, 2021.During the interview, Haugen discussed the Facebook program known as Civic Integrity, which was intended to curb misinformation and other threats to election security.The program was dissolved after the 2020 election, which Haugen said “really feels like a betrayal of democracy to me,”and which she believed contributed to the 2021 United States Capitol attack.

Haugen also shared documents with members of the U.S. Congress and offices of attorneys general, but not the Federal Trade Commission.Facebook’s market capitalization dropped by $6 billion within 24 hours of Haugen’s 60 Minutes interview on October 3, 2021, and after the Facebook outage on October 4, 2021.Based on the leaked documents, Kevin Roose, writing for The New York Times, suggested Facebook may be weaker than it appears.
