Technology and social media companies have benefited our lives enormously. But even with the best intentions, companies are under pressure from shareholders to prioritize product usage and growth, which can create invisible harms in society.

This Ledger collects those negative impacts of technology that do not show up on the balance sheets of companies, but on the balance sheet of society. We evaluate the information we receive before we publish it here, including a methodological review of all the statistical studies we include.
