Meta Oversight Board publishes its first annual report

(MENAFN) The Oversight Board for Meta has released its inaugural yearly report. It explains the work the board has done in respect to how Meta, the business previously known as Facebook, treats its users and their content as well as the work that has to be done. The report covers the period from October 2020 to December 2021.

The board is an impartial organization created and supported by Meta to examine Facebook and Instagram's content and content-moderation rules. It takes into account issues brought up by Meta as well as by users who have used all of the corporation’s internal appeals procedures. It has the authority to make decisions that supersede those of the corporation and suggest strategy changes.

The board heard over a million appeals during the reporting year, handed down 20 verdicts, 14 of which reversed Meta's own decisions, and made 86 recommendations to the corporations.

Director of the Board Thomas Hughes spoke to Arab News, “through our first Annual Report, we’re able to demonstrate the significant impact the board has had on pushing Meta to become more transparent in its content policies and fairer in its content decisions.”
