Facebook Inc.'s (FB) Oversight Board on Monday said it will meet with Frances Haugen, a former employee who told a Senate panel last week that Facebook knew its product was harming kids. "In light of the serious claims made about Facebook by Haugen, we have extended an invitation for her to speak to the Board over the coming weeks, which she has accepted," the independent board said in a statement. Facebook shares are up about 20% this year. The broader S&P 500 index has gained 17% in 2021.
