Facebook launches ‘court of appeal’ for controversial content

Published: Updated:

Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, announced Thursday, November 15, the creation of their own independent “court of appeal” whose mission will be to rule on controversial content posted on the social network: will they remain online or not?

The announcement came during a teleconference in which Zuckerberg explained the New York Times’ revelations about Facebook’s use of a controversial public relations company, which he acknowledged should never have been appointed.

Zuckerberg also announced that Facebook began establishing quarterly transparency and enforcement reports to improve its systems as well as measure the prevalence of harmful content on the website.

The new system will help the company increase the effectiveness of their proactive enforcement and develop a more open and transparent policy-making process.
