  1. I am an avid #MentalHealthAwareness advocate and spoken word performer, and I love this so much. I travel the country trying to bring that awareness on stages, in classrooms, hospitals, and on my YouTube channel, so I get excited when I see other advocates. 💙❤

  2. No one care about the teen health , the proove is that they ignored it up until the elections,even if it was known lng time a go, The powerful  key figurs care about politics, and safty of their country information, for example China get a lot of information on other countries and so on, it's the real reason why it's rasing a question and the reason for the hearing that was in 2021

  3. This was a very illuminating interview. Trevor is really doing gods work putting these conversations out there. Thanks Francis for being so bold for the sake of humanity! You’re a real life hero!

  4. I really love that Trevor has people from all walks, I think thisis his distinguishing value. He has cordial discussion with Rep, Dems and all types. Its great to see people talk about things openly.

  5. Two months ago the german satirist Jan Böhmermann had Haugen on for 30 minutes and the conversation was deeper and the questiions better informed. Just in case you are interested in learning more about this…

  6. Easy fix , once i flagged content and Chanel (I don’t want to see this type of video ) Facebook should respect my choice , why I see another and another poisoned videos from channels I flagged two days ago as I don’t want to see ? It’s easy fix and they don’t want to respect it . Maybe this content keeps me on the Facebook ? Because it create emotions? By why negative one ? Would I stay with positive experience ?

  7. She proves the emphasis on dislikes/disagreeing that I noticed from observation! Thank you Frances…
    They need to protect people.

  8. Thank you so much . Left Facebook 9 years ago . I have no social media. Saw this coming a decade ago. So sad whats it doing to peoples mental health especially kids.

  9. This reminds me of the paperclip machine story.
    There is a paperclip machine that is designed to make as many paperclips as possible. Then that paperclip machine destroys the environment to make more paperclips. Then it kills every human and turns them all into paperclips.
    The insight of the paperclip machine story is that machines don't have any of the ethics, values, or even self-preservation nature that any living thing has. It only does what it is programmed to do.

  10. This is a serious issue and the way I coped with this is by resolving only cat videos on my wall . And I'm not even joking 🙈

  13. Another gangster female…did u see when she clapped against them. uhuh. Great work Trevor and team.(blowing whistle) I miss Jabouki.(sad eyes)

  14. Trevor, you should read the leaked document first. Over 10 points were reported in it, and in only one of them, which was about young girls' body image, participants said Facebook is harming them. Also, Facebook was to present that report in a hearing a few days after she leaked it. It was not going to be a secret. She leaked it in a hurry to get the status of a whistle-blower. She did it for fame.
