    Facebook has become a global power and the world is now questioning the way it operates as it continues to harvest users data and spread misinformation and hate speech.

    A new book titled An Ugly Truth looks at the inner workings of the tech giant. New York Times journalist Sheera Frenkel is one of the co-authors of the book and she joins Laura Tingle to discuss.

    In a statement, Facebook described the book as “a rehash of history” that “relies on anecdotes by mostly unnamed critics”. You can find the full statement here: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/20994826-statement-from-a-facebook-company-spokesperson
