It turns out that 0.02% of harmful experiences people have on social media today are addressed by the current approach to Integrity and Safety. Why is that? Think of how many ways there are to be racist, threaten someone (or any other issue), and then multiply by culture, sub-culture, age, and humans. I’ll be discussing some directions that can help one of the most challenging of today’s problems.

Arturo BĂ©jar started working on capability security, cryptographic systems, and web application security in the 90s, ending up as Yahoo!’s head of information security. From 2009-2015, Arturo was the Director for Protect And Care for Facebook managing the teams responsible for engineering, product, data, design, and research for: Integrity (including all the infrastructure to protect against spam and other attacks), Security Engineering, Product Infrastructure (the team that created React), Safety, and Care. From 2019-2021, Arturo returned to Meta/Facebook as a consultant which resulted in his whistleblowing about harms experienced by teens on Instagram.
