Democratic Senators Pushing For Investigation Into Facebooks Misleading Information

Two Democratic senators,. Elizabeth Warren and Maria Cantwell are asking for a federal investigation into allegations that Facebook misled advertisers and investors about public safety concerns on their platform. Thursday warren pled with federal investigators to determine if Facebook violated U.S. wire fraud and securities laws. This news comes just a week after the senate Commerce Committee ran a investigation into the now Meta platform into if they violated agency law in the way in which they conduct their business practices.Warrens push for the investigation stems from the idea that facebook deliberately lied about illegal conduct taking place on of the world’s largest social media platforms. With Facebook already under fire for the handling of their data breach and their role in the 2016 election. This  does not come at a good time after their renaming of Meta formally named Facebook. One wonders, what else are they really keeping from us?
