Comments on the Oversight Board’s Decision Regarding Trump’s Facebook Account

Today, the Oversight Board issued its decision regarding Facebook’s decision to suspend Trump’s account for two posts Trump made during the January 6 insurrection. The decision covers a lot of ground (it’s nearly 12k words), and I’ll only cover part of it. The decision has three main points: Trump violated Facebook’s rules. Facebook was justified to suspend Trump’s account, but it was not justified to suspend it for an indefinite period. Facebook should publicly clarify several policies. The ...

Facebook Oversight Board upholds Donald Trump’s suspension from the platform

By Brian Fung | CNN Business Facebook can keep blocking former President Donald Trump from using its platform, the social network’s court-like Oversight Board said Wednesday. The landmark move affirms the company’s decision to suspend Trump in January after the US Capitol riots. However, the board said Facebook must review the decision within six months. The decision also applies to Facebook-owned Instagram where Trump has an account. Trump has almost 60 million followers across Facebook and In...

For Trump and Facebook, judgment day is around the corner

Facebook unceremoniously confiscated Trump’s biggest social media megaphone months ago, but the former president might be poised to snatch it back. Facebook’s Oversight Board, an external Supreme Court-like policy decision making group, will either restore Trump’s Facebook privileges or banish him forever on Wednesday. Whatever happens, it’s a huge moment for Facebook’s nascent experiment in outsourcing hard content moderation calls to an elite group of global thinkers, academics and political f...

Facebook Oversight Board to announce if it’ll reverse Trump ban on May 5

Facebook’s Oversight Board — something akin to a supreme court for the company — will decide whether to reverse the controversial Trump ban on Wednesday at 9:00 AM ET. The Trump ban went into effect on January 7, a day after the Capitol riot. Zuckerberg said Trump was banned “indefinitely” from Facebook and Instagram, but the matter was then submitted to the company’s Oversight Board on January 21. The Oversight Board was originally slated to make a decision within 90 days, but the ruling was de...

Facebook’s decision-review body to take “weeks” longer over Trump ban call

Facebook’s self-styled and handpicked ‘Oversight Board’ will make a decision on whether or not to overturn an indefinite suspension of the account of former president Donald Trump within “weeks”, it said in a brief update statement on the matter today. The high profile case appears to have attracted major public interest, with the FOB tweeting that it’s received more than 9,000 responses so far to its earlier request for public feedback.

Facebook, Instagram users can now ask ‘oversight’ panel to review decisions not to remove content

Facebook’s self-styled ‘Oversight Board’ (FOB) has announced an operational change that looks intended to respond to criticism of the limits of the self-regulatory content-moderation decision review body: It says it’s started accepting requests from users to review decisions to leave content up on Facebook and Instagram. The move expands the FOB’s remit beyond reviewing (and mostly reversing) content takedowns — an arbitrary limit that critics said aligns it with the economic incentives of its p...

Facebook says Trump can’t skirt its ban through daughter-in-law’s account

Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump promoted a new interview with the former president on Facebook and Instagram Tuesday, but a workaround to Trump’s ban on two of the world’s most popular social networks wasn’t long for this world. She was apparently swiftly cautioned by Facebook that anything posted “in the voice of President Trump” is not currently allowed on Facebook or Instagram and would be subject to removal. Trump himself remains banned on Facebook pending a decision by the Oversight Boar...

Facebook’s ‘oversight’ body overturns four takedowns and issues a slew of policy suggestions

Facebook’s self-regulatory ‘Oversight Board’ (FOB) has delivered its first batch of decisions on contested content moderation decisions almost two months after picking its first cases. A long time in the making, the FOB is part of Facebook’s crisis PR push to distance its business from the impact of controversial content moderation decisions — by creating a review body to handle a tiny fraction of the complaints its content takedowns attract.

Facebook’s Trump ban could be lifted by its Oversight Board

Facebook’s “indefinite” ban on Donald Trump could be lifted by the company’s Oversight Board, the company announced on Thursday.

Trump v. Facebook

Facebook has decided to ask its new, independent Oversight Board to rule on its decision to suspend Donald Trump indefinitely. The Board will be able to make a binding determination regarding Trump, telling Facebook it was right or wrong, and Facebook and Instagram will obey. Trump will be free to a statement to the Board within two weeks. Though the question is specific to Trump, it will undoubtedly have larger impact as other government officials — in Germany, the EU, the UK, and most ...

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is ditching his tradition of setting himself wacky New Year's resolutions (FB)

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is ditching his tradition of setting himself annual challenges. The 34-year-old billionaire exec said that he's now handling more "social responsibility" and is raising a family. In previous years, his challenges have ranged from making an AI assistant to only eating meat from animals he killed himself. "While I'm glad I did annual challenges over the last decade, it's time to do something different," he wrote. "This decade I'm going to take a longer term focus." ...

We Are Social’s Monday Mashup #461

Facebook reveals how Oversight Board will work Facebook has released a charter explaining how its (theoretically) independent Oversight Board will work. The board will review appeals to Facebook’s policy decisions, like content takedowns, and make recommendations for changes. Its decision will be final, even if those at Facebook aren’t happy about it. But many are skeptical, particularly as Facebook itself will choose the board’s initial members. For a rundown of how the board came about, how it...
