Facebooks controversial Oversight Board starts reviewing content moderation cases

Facebooks external body of decision makers will start reviewing cases about what stays on the platform and what goes beginning today.
The new system will elevate some of the platforms content moderation decisions to a new group called the Facebook Oversight Board, which will make decisions and influence precedents about what kind of content should and shouldnt be allowed.
But as weve reported previously, the boards decisions wont just magically enact changes on the platform. Instead of setting policy independently, each recommended platform policy change from the oversight board will get kicked back to Facebook, which will review that guidance and decide what changes, if any, to make.
