(Worthy News) – Facebook’s independent Oversight Board said Monday it will make it easier for users to ask to remove content they don’t like, giving the board heightened powers and increasing the amount of censorship possible on Facebook.
The board will now let users report content for removal to the board that Facebook has decided should stay up on the platform and on Instagram, which marks a long-awaited expansion of the board’s initial role. The new content appeal process will start Monday and roll out fully over the coming weeks.
“As originally contemplated by the Oversight Board’s bylaws, the board can now review Facebook’s decision to leave content on the platform — content eligible for appeal to the board still includes posts/statuses, photos, videos, comments, and shares,” Facebook announced in a press release on Tuesday.
