Why Girls’ Globe is Suspending Its Use of Facebook and Instagram

Tech giant Facebook Inc., recently renamed Meta, has for a long time known of its detrimental effects on people. This includes negative effects on teen girls, women, minority groups, entire societies and democracies. Despite their knowledge, they have done very little to improve the safety of their platforms.

Girls’ Globe can’t condone the behavior of this monopolistic company that knowingly prioritizes profit over the safety and wellbeing of people in our world. We are a media platform that amplifies voices for gender equality, human rights and social justice and we will take no part in supporting a company that knowingly does the opposite.
