Meta said it will implement most of the recommendations made by an independent oversight board regarding its policy of exempting prominent users from some content-related rules.
However, Facebook’s parent company rejected some proposals to increase transparency and reduce bias against content created by public figures.
The supervisory board called for a review of the controversial “cross-check” system, which gives public figures additional leeway to post content that violates company policy.
Meta also said it will refine its criteria for assessing who can be included on the list “to better take into account human rights and equity” and to reduce the time it takes to review affairs.
The council said the practice privileges the powerful and allows business interests to influence content decisions.
One of the recommendations that Meta has rejected is to mark the pages and accounts of certain public figures who receive special protection from the company.
