Facebook whistleblower testifies before Senate on youth mental health: Watch live

Senators will hear testimony Tuesday morning from a former Facebook employee who is alleging the company failed to act on reports of harassment and harm facing teens on the platform, as The Hill previously reported.

Arturo Bejar, a former Facebook engineering director who later worked as a company consultant, will testify before a Senate subcommittee about social media and its impact on the teen mental health crisis, the panel announced Friday.

The testimony comes amid a bipartisan push in Congress to adopt regulations aimed at protecting kids online. 

The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. EST.
