Facebook wanted its $130 million 'Supreme Court' to solve its policy enforcement problems. The board's decision to punt on Trump's ban shows how the initiative has backfired.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Drew Angerer/Getty Images Facebook formed its "supreme court" to help it navigate tricky content moderation decisions. It turned to the group in the case of Trump's suspension, but the board rejected part of its request. That leaves Facebook on its own when it comes to creating and enforcing rules. See more stories on Insider's business page. Facebook's "Supreme Court" sent a strong message to the company on Wednesday: Do your own work.It was likel...

Facebook Criticized For 'Arbitrary' Suspension of Trump -- by Its Own Oversight Board

"It never occurred to me that a Facebook-appointed panel could avoid a clear decision about Donald Trump's heinous online behavior," writes a New York Times technology reporter. "But that is what it's done..." They call the board's decision "kind of perfect, actually, since it forces everyone's hand — from the Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg to our limp legislators in Congress..." The editor of the conservative National Review adds: If Facebook had set out to demonstrate that it has ...

Suck it, Zuck — only 4% of US iOS users say ‘okay then’ to ad tracking

At the end of the day, all Apple wants is your money. Sometimes though, this desire for cash manifests as something that’s actually positive for users. And Apple‘s app tracking transparency is one of those things. With the launch of iOS 14.5, Apple included a feature that allows you to stop apps tracking you across multiple bits of software or websites. Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg hate it — and you can find a breakdown of the function here. And — would you believe it? — it appears as though dro...

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 decision also applies to Facebook-owned Instagram where Trump has an account. Trump has almost 60 million followers across Facebook and In...

Facebook’s hand-picked ‘oversight’ panel upholds Trump ban — for now

Facebook’s content decision review body, a quasi-external panel that’s been likened to a ‘Supreme Court of Facebook’ but isn’t staffed by sitting judges, can’t be truly independent of the tech giant which funds it, has no legal legitimacy or democratic accountability, and goes by the much duller official title ‘Oversight Board’ (aka the FOB) — has just made the biggest call of its short life: Facebook’s hand-picked ‘oversight’ panel has voted against reinstating former U.S. president Donald Trum...

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...

Ranking the new iOS 14.5 features by how much they’ll annoy Zuckerberg

This week’s release of iOS 14.5 was a big one. Not only are there interesting new features like mask unlock and a redesigned podcast app, but Apple also went all Wild West on app tracking. And the tech world took notice. Facebook head honcho Mark Zuckerberg has been particularly and repeatedly critical of Apple strapping on a pair of six shooters and heading to Advert Town to protect your privacy. Of course, Apple is doing this for profit, but that doesn’t make it infuriating Facebook any less d...
