At long last ... Facebook's board of directors has started taking the cases

Facebook's independent watchdog, which can veto internal decisions to remove content, accepted an examination of the cases on Thursday. However, the company said problems related to the US election could be ruled out.

The company said a long-awaited oversight panel was formed to criticize the way Facebook handles problematic content, and is now open to users who have exhausted the appeal process.

However, Facebook's head of governance and global affairs (Brent Harris) told reporters by phone that the company would not submit any cases for urgent review before the November 3 election.

Facebook users outside of the United States can file a complaint via the Council's website within 15 days of contacting them about a final content decision. The first oversight board member was announced in May. The board said: It could take several weeks for this option to become available to all users.

The committee said: It will provide details of the first cases and open a public consultation process during the next few weeks. According to reports, the committee will only be able to review a small number of cases and have up to 90 days to make a decision and Facebook will take appropriate action.

Board Director Thomas Hughes said: The Censorship Board has been criticized for its ability to judge limited types of content and its goal is to hear the remaining content on Facebook and Instagram since its inception in 2021.

You can reach companies wondering if the content should be kept or removed, or companies related to a variety of topics, such as: b. Ads or Facebook groups, or you can get guidance.

Additionally, Facebook said today, Thursday: WhatsApp will provide hosting and shopping services directly through the app. This is a new step to increase sales using instant messaging applications while integrating the e-commerce infrastructure with all associated services.
