Facebook is trying to prevent internal files from leaking

Facebook has told its employees that it is making some of its internal online discussion groups private to help reduce leaks.

Many company employees participate in online discussion groups in the workplace. Workplace is an in-house bulletin board that employees can use to communicate and collaborate with each other.

In the announcement, the company said it would make certain groups focus on platform security and election protection private rather than public within the company. This limits who can view and participate in discussion topics.

The move follows former employee Frances Hogan (Francis Hogan) who passed thousands of pages of internal documents to regulators, lawmakers and the media.

The documents show that the company was aware of part of the damage. Hugin, a former member of the company's civil integrity team, filed a complaint with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. She testified before the Senate subcommittee this month.

"We've seen an increase in integrity leaks over the past few months," a technical director wrote in an ad commented by the New York Times.

"These leaks do not represent the nuance and complexity of our work," he added. They are often taken out of context, which leads to our work being mischaracterized from the outside.

The company is known for its open culture that encourages discussion and transparency. However, it has become more isolated as it faces issues such as toxic notes, misinformation, and resolving employee interference.

In July, the communications team closed comments on an internal company-wide advertising forum.

In a statement, Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone (Andy Stone) said: “The leaks make it difficult for our team to work together. This can jeopardize employees who work abroad on sensitive topics.

He added, "The leaks have also created complex problems that are not well understood and misunderstood. We have been planning these changes for months.

Facebook is in dire straits due to internal leaks

The new ad said the company plans to filter some online newsgroups to exclude people whose jobs have nothing to do with security.

The announcement said: There will be changes in the coming months. In the future, sensitive and honest discussions should take place in a closed and coordinated forum.

Some employees support this movement in internal comments. Others condemned the loss of transparency and cooperation. They described this change as counterproductive. One person noted that this could lead to staff dissatisfaction with divulging secrets.
