Since the original announcement, Facebook has hosted a global consultation process of workshops and roundtables with more than 650 people in 88 countries. The company now has a final charter which establishes the oversight board’s structure, scope and authority, as well as bylaws to show for its efforts. The group will start choosing cases to hear this summer.

Facebook supreme court members announced. A former US federal judge, said that the new method of judging content was an experiment and it was likely mistakes would be made, but he hoped that it would bring a “higher degree of political neutrality” to the platform. One of its main goals would be that Facebook “not decide elections”, he said. But he added that the board would not be “the internet police” able to sweep in and make quick decisions.

Members are a mix of journalists, judges, digital rights activists and former government advisers from around the globe, including:

  • Afia Asantewaa Asare-Kyei – a human rights advocate who works on women’s rights and media freedom across Africa
  • Evelyn Aswad – a law professor who served as a senior US state department lawyer
  • Nighat Dad – a digital rights advocate, based in Pakistan
  • Alan Rusbridger – former editor-in-chief of The Guardian newspaper
  • Emi Palmor – a former director general of the Israeli ministry of justice
  • Ronaldo Lemos, a lawyer who co-created a national internet rights law in Brazil

Facebook supreme court members announced Presently, the scope of the board is limited to content moderation, but might it one day extend to Facebook’s design of its own algorithms or data gathering process? The fact that Facebook designed the board as an open source framework that other tech giants can either use for themselves or even join the existing board, means that we could one day look to a future supreme court of the internet.
