Facebook announced its plans to create an Oversight Board made up of individuals who will review the tech company’s decisions to take down content or leave it on the site, The Washington Post reports. About 40 people will be on the board as they offer a final ruling for users who seek answers on Facebook’s moderation choices. Facebook released a charter that outlines who will be on the board and the review process itself. “We are responsible for enforcing our policies every day and we make millions of content decisions every week,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a letter. “But ultimately I don’t believe private companies like ours should be making so many important decisions about speech on our own.” (Registration may be required to access this story.)
