Meta, the parent company of Facebook, has announced changes to its “cross-check” moderation system after criticism of special treatment for VIP users. The system had shielded some high-profile accounts from Facebook’s normal content moderation process, allowing them to post rule-violating content without consequences. The Oversight Board called for increased transparency and suggested publicly identifying accounts included in the program, but Meta declined to implement that recommendation. Meta committed to distinguishing between accounts included in the program for business versus human rights reasons and refining its process for temporarily removing or hiding potentially harmful content. The changes were welcomed by the Oversight Board.
