Facebook Supervisory Council: no answers to questions about celebrities – Netherlands News Live

The supervisory board established by Facebook has not received an answer about what special rules apply to celebrities on the social network. The Danish former Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt, who is on the so-called Oversight Board, has complained about this. According to Thorning-Schmidt, the answers that Facebook and parent company Meta Platforms do give are not satisfied.

Facebook has a special system called Cross Check that applies to famous politicians, journalists and other famous users. This was to prevent the social network from being criticized if messages from such celebrities are incorrectly removed for violations of the rules.

Because Meta increasingly relies on artificial intelligence when reviewing messages, wrong decisions are also increasingly made. If people object to this, it is often reversed. However, this cannot prevent bad publicity from developing with celebrities, who are often followed by many people.

According to Facebook, Cross Check would be applied “only to a small number of decisions”. However, The Wall Street Journal revealed that it involved 5.7 million celebrities. “We certainly didn’t know enough about that,” said Thorning-Schmidt.

The Oversight Board was set up by Facebook as a kind of supreme court to determine whether the social network applies its rules correctly.
