The Oversight Board has repeatedly failed to provide information on the social media giant’s “cross-check” process.
Facebook’s Oversight Board said on Thursday that the social media giant needs to be more transparent about how it handles content from high-profile users and how those users are selected for what’s known as the “Cross-Check” program.
Also known as XCheck, the program exempts high-profile users such as celebrities and political leaders from the platform’s community standards. The program came to the fore as part of a Wall Street Journal series based on a huge wealth of leaked documents revealing how much the social network knows about its effects on users.
The Oversight Board said Facebook has repeatedly failed to deliver or provide incomplete information requested about high-profile user decisions, such as ex-President Donald Trump’s ban from the platform or the Cross Check program in general.
Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
More to come.
