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.
