Facebook publishes internal guidelines on community standards

Facebook has published the internal guidelines it uses to enforce community standards and what type of content it allows to be published on the platform.

The social media giant also said: “For the first time we’re giving you the right to appeal our decisions on individual posts so you can ask for a second opinion when you think we’ve made a mistake”.

In a statement, the company said it decided to publish the internal guidelines to help people understand where Facebook draws the line on nuanced issues.

It also said the guidelines will make it “easier for everyone, including experts in different fields, to give us feedback so that we can improve the guidelines – and the decisions we make – over time”.

Facebook said it has “people in 11 offices around the world, including subject matter experts on issues such as hate speech, child safety and terrorism”.

Recently, Facebook faced backlash after it let consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica mine data from millions of users without their permission.

  1. When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

  2. If you ever tried Phallomax, pls share your thoughts below. I’m about to try it out. Have seen about this remedy some promising reviews. Just wondering on how much of additional length would it add to my little fella down there lol 😀

  4. Fab post. Btw did anyone try this product: http://bit.ly/2N5npwG Looks like it’s one of those products you don’t normally talk about. I’ve come across it a week ago and decided I’ll give it a try just to see how good it is. watched some video reviews on Dailymotion and they look legit (I mean not scripted). Not all products out there have so many positive opinions. Have a look on it, maybe this can finally solve our problems (or at least yours).
