The dispute is against the malpractices of the company regarding mental health within its users, particularly teenagers, something that Facebook allegedly disregards in the name of profit. The whistleblower said that what Facebook is practicing is more of profit over its users, something that focuses more on what makes money rather than internal safety. 

That being said, another whistleblower has presented its case but has not yet gone public with its claims against the big blue social media. 

Despite all this, Facebook has still managed to get a massive revenue for the past three months (or the third quarter), something which the company celebrates now amidst its issues.
