WHAT IS THIS ABOUT: Between September 13, 2021 and October 3, 2021 , The Wall Street Journal released a series of nine articles alleging that Facebook had been misleading investors regarding its business operations. The allegations were based on internal documents provided by a whistleblower. On October 4, 2021 , CBS's segment 60 Minutes spoke with the whistleblower and published the whistleblower's SEC whistleblower complaints. On October 5, 2021 , the whistleblower testified before Congress concerning Facebook's misleading statements and omissions of material fact.
Among the numerous allegations, the internal documents show that: (1) Facebook misled investors regarding how its "Cross Check" or "XCheck" system actually functioned, which in reality gave preferential treatment to Facebook's 'VIP' users; (2) despite its outward facing policy of disallowing users under the age of 13, Facebook was internally researching pre-teen users and their engagement with certain Facebook services, and how to turn those users into long-term users; (3) despite Facebook's stated policy of making its services as safe as possible, Facebook lagged in its response to drug cartels and human traffickers using its services; (4) Facebook misrepresented its negative impact on teens' mental health, particularly in teen girls; (5) Facebook misled investors and advertisers by inflating its shrinking user base; and (6) Facebook misrepresented its role in fomenting ethnic violence and division.
Between September 13, 2021 and October 5, 2021 , Facebook share prices dropped by $48.72 , or over 12%, to close on October 5, 2021 at $332.96 .
