Stop allowing Facebook to harvest Whatsapp data for profit
This is an appeal to all Whatsapp employees.
Facebook and Whatsapp execs are trying to sweep this under the rug in order to continue to profit off of people's personal data. More than ever we need employees of these two companies to start speaking out about these manipulative practices. That's where you come in.
Here's what we're looking for:
Whatsapp staff members (it doesn't matter what your role is) to send us a short testimony about your objection to these harmful data harvesting practices.
Even just 1 line saying "I'm a Whatsapp employee and I object to Facebook's data harvesting practices" is really helpful -- though the more personalized your testimony, the better. We will then use these testimonies in advocacy with governments to enact stronger data protection laws, and with the media in order to expose this issue when the policy takes effect May 15.
Your testimony will be *entirely* anonymous. Your identity will never be revealed to either company, or even the media (unless you wish to speak publicly).
You may email email@example.com to submit your testimony, or if you prefer to do this more securely, feel free to use our whistleblower tool that is encrypted and anonymous: https://techleaks.sumofus.org
