Oversight Board calls Facebook 'inconsistent' in decision making

Facebook Oversight Board published a statement on Tuesday claiming the social media giant has been "inconsistent" with the way it makes decisions when brushing through the created content.

"We are looking into the degree to which Facebook has been fully forthcoming in its responses in relation to cross-check, including the practice of whitelisting. [...] By having clear rules and enforcing them consistently, platforms can give users the confidence that they'll be treated fairly," the Board said

The statement came in response to previous media reports that Facebook excuses its high-profile users, including celebrities, politicians, and journalists, from its own rules and regulations by "whitelisting" them.
