Whistleblower Frances Haugen urged her former boss Mark Zuckerberg, to step down and allow change. She slammed his decision to rebrand the company itself. 

"Facebook would be stronger with someone who was willing to focus on safety," she said. 

Last month, Haugen told British and American lawmakers that Facebook would fuel more violent unrest worldwide unless it curbed its algorithms.

Company played a crucial role in pushing extreme, divisive content and preying on vulnerable demographics.

Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Facebook Inc., announced that the company will be known as Meta Platforms Inc, or Meta for short henceforth. 

 Facebook app/website is not changing its name. Same in the case of Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger.
