Sophie Zhang, a data scientist, was fired by Facebook earlier this month and released the memo on her last day. Zhang pointed out that she was fired after raising concerns about her superior management, and she was told to stop paying attention to things outside her responsibilities. Zhang rejected the $64000 severance payment from the company because it involved signing a non derogatory agreement that would limit her ability to speak publicly about the company, according to the memo. In the memo, Zhang also said that Facebook often focuses on the overall situation, but ignores many cases of direct political manipulation. For example, in countries such as Ukraine and India, people try to use Facebook to influence public opinion. “In general, most of my organization’s and Facebook’s efforts are focused on the big picture, and this approach allows us to focus on spam,” Zhang wrote. Because of its small size, urban problems are ignored, and its disproportionate impact is ignored. ” Zhang’s memo also points out that even middle-level employees like her who specialize in fields such as data science can exercise tremendous power within Facebook to control the activities of high-profile users like world leaders. “I personally made decisions that affected presidents without supervision and acted on many of the world’s leading politicians,” she wrote The memo points out that although Facebook is not malicious, it has not focused enough attention and resources on this issue, nor has it paid more attention to issues that will affect public relations. “In the area of civic integrity, Facebook’s short-term decisions are largely driven by public relations and potentially negative concerns, which is an open secret.” Reports in major newspapers such as the New York Times or the Washington Post will attract the attention of Facebook’s leadership and help speed up the resolution of political manipulation in India’s elections, the memo said.
