Oversight Board (Facebook)
Appellate body of Facebook
The Oversight Board is a body that makes consequential precedential content moderation decisions on the social media platforms Facebook and Instagram. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg approved the creation of the board in November 2018, shortly after a meeting with Harvard Law School professor Noah Feldman, who had proposed the creation of a quasi-judiciary on Facebook. Zuckerberg originally described it as a kind of "Supreme Court", given its role in settlement, negotiation, and mediation, including the power to override the company's decisions.
