Facebook executives are investigating whether the media group has allowed prominent users to violate its rules and that the company has kept a low profile.
The commission, which oversees the “Supreme Court” on Tuesday, said it was looking into “how Facebook has become” in response to questions asked about “analytics”, internal media, and popular media. also the media has ensured that the notes were not removed incorrectly.
According to a Wall Street Journal release last week, the system was written to include millions of users, and is sometimes used to protect other users even if they violate Facebook rules, known as whitelisting.
In June, the company told the committee that the system was only used for “limited elections”, the Journal reported.
“This disclosure has sparked new interest in the unconventional manifestations of the company’s decision-making processes,” the governing body said Tuesday. “We are also looking at how the commission can continue to review the content of the review process, which could lead to further insights into this issue.”
The Facebook governing body has been established and is assisted by a media company to make informed decisions about its decisions and policies, as it is expected to establish strict rules from policy makers.
But some have complained that it does not have enough power to force Facebook to change the necessary information.
The commission said it had “been asking questions for some time”, but Facebook declined to comment further. It also said that “it reached out to Facebook to ask them to share more information we have already shared”, and hopes to share it with them in the coming days.
Facebook declined to comment.
The article follows a tragic week on Facebook, with the Journal publishing articles reported by a reporter, many claiming that the company was conducting an internal investigation before burial if the findings showed that they were not good enough.
Political leaders, including lawmakers on the Senate’s executive committee on consumer protection, want to hear from technical experts to discuss some of the issues raised.
Over the weekend, Nick Clegg, vice president of Facebook for global affairs, retaliated against the newspaper and its blog, entitled “What the Wall Street Journal Got Wrong”, accusing it of “disrupting” the company’s operations and of “fraudulently misleading the intentions to Facebook leadership and partners ”.
