The New American Experiment

Last Tuesday, Facebook announced plans to establish an independent “Oversight Board” by early 2020. The committee will handle matters related to content-moderation, taking CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s hand off the big red button that decides which posts get taken down and which stay up. This new governing body, which has been likened to Facebook’s version of a Supreme Court, will be comprised of 11 to 40 members and be able to overturn the company’s own content regulation.Facebook’s Oversight Board is just the next installment in a long slew of attempts by social media platforms to monitor the content they host.
