In the coming months, we will be assessing how Facebook implements these responses, both to ensure the company takes action and to learn lessons for future decisions.

Facebook’s response to our recommendations is encouraging and shows how the Board’s impact goes beyond individual pieces of content. The work of the Board will reshape Facebook’s wider approach to content moderation over the long-term.

Pam Karlan has accepted a role in the US Department of Justice and stepped down from the Oversight Board. Her expertise played a crucial role in shaping the Board. We’re grateful for her contributions and congratulate her on her new role.

And that is exactly what these @OversightBoard opinions go for--taking the system seriously, pushing for users to know what the rules are, what they did to break them, when they're made by algorithms, & where the punishment could be more than just t"ake it down or leave it up" 8/

If you accept that FB's content moderation & speech policy is a governance system over speech, you might want to start forcing that system to adhere to some universal principals of justice and human rights law: notice of rules, explanation, proportionality in punishment etc. 7/

The Board prioritises cases that can affect lots of users, are crucial to public discourse or raise important questions about Facebook’s policies. Our focus is on providing an independent check on how Facebook moderates content, and reshaping their policies over the long-term.
