What is the Oversight Board?
The Oversight Board decides if content should stay on Facebook and Instagram.
We created the Oversight Board because we don’t think we should make those decisions alone.
This independent group of experts reviews important decisions we make and helps us balance free speech and safety.
The Oversight Board is separate from Meta.
Independence means the board makes its own decisions, even if Meta disagrees. Meta employees cannot be members of the board, not even their spouses. Ex-Meta employees and majority shareholders cannot be board members. Meta cannot fire board members.
The board is made up of experts and civic leaders from a variety of professional backgrounds, cultures, opinions and beliefs. It is important to have board members from different countries in order to reflect the diversity of our users.
When the Oversight Board makes a decision, Meta has to follow it.
The board’s decisions are binding, as long as implementing them won’t violate the law. The board makes recommendations about how to handle similar situations in the future. These suggestions include recommendations to clarify our policies and to improve the process of reviewing content. All of the decisions and many of the recommendations have been implemented.
Decisions vs Recommendations
Decisions are things like: reinstate a post that we previously removed.
Recommendations are things like: further clarify what types of phrases are considered hate speech under our policy.
If you disagree with our decision to take down or keep up a post, you can ask us to review it. If we don’t stick to our original decision you can appeal to The Oversight Board.
