It is the sacred union against Facebook.

After its role in disinformation in the 2016 US presidential campaign, the Cambridge Analytica fiasco and 10 years of empty promises to do better, the Silicon Valley giant has its back to the wall.

In early October, whistleblower Frances Haugen revealed that Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg knew Instagram could have a negative impact, especially among young teenage girls.

And she accused them of prioritizing profits over the safety and well-being of its users.

The elected Americans and Democrats all seem to be in tune: it is so long to attack Facebook.

And the global blackout at the beginning of October, which affected the social network but also Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram, gave arguments to those who plead for the dismantling of the company into several separate entities.

The whistleblower is campaigning for the regulation of algorithms, in particular by lifting the legal protection enjoyed by Facebook and all web platforms.

Whatever solution is chosen, one thing is certain: we could well witness a long legal standoff.
