As pointed out by the AP, this could be a distraction after the latest troubles that the company has been facing:
“Skeptics point out that it also appears to be an attempt to change the subject from the Facebook Papers, a leaked document trove that has revealed the ways Facebook ignored internal reports and warnings of the harms its social network created or magnified across the world”
