As part of a pilot project, a team of French regulators will monitor how Facebook moderates content in an effort to help establish a new model for regulating tech companies, The Wall Street Journal reports. A person familiar with the endeavor said the partnership would provide a “broader and deeper access” to the company’s content moderation efforts than previously ascertained by company outsiders but believed privacy concerns would limit regulators' ability to review actual content. Meanwhile, a new documentary, called “The Cleaners,” highlights the impact on content moderators as they sift through and remove content deemed inappropriate. Editor's Note: The IAPP recently launched the Content Moderation Digest. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
