A FACEBOOK whistleblower is worried kids will waste away in Mark Zuckerberg's metaverse

Frances Haugen shocked the world last year when she bravely came forward as the leaker who released thousands of top secret documents

The data scientist has accused the tech giant of putting profit before public safety - something Facebook owner Meta has repeatedly denied

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Frances has revealed concerns about where Zuckerberg's big metaverse plan will go

The metaverse is being spearheaded by the tech billionaire as a new virtual world where he wants us to work and socialise

Frances, from Iowa, believes there are serious questions about the project that need to be answered before we go any further

Do we want a whole generation of young people to be like, 'oh, all my friends want to just be online with me

"When we switch to the metaverse it’s another step up in that escalation chain."
