Instagram Head Faces Senate Rage on Whistle-Blower Claims

Adam Mosseri will have to respond to an array of accusations from senators who have compared Instagram’s parent company -- which changed its name from Facebook to Meta Platforms Inc. in a corporate rebranding effort -- to tobacco firms that hid the deadly consequences of their products from Congress and the public.
