Facebook revealed to its users their secret to censor the publications in the social network. The Cambridge Analytica scandal has been a turning point, and now the social network has adopted a policy of greater transparency.
A proof of this is the decision to share with the community the rules for censoring posts, photos and videos to which only the moderators of the company had access to the moment.
“We decided to publish these internal guidelines for two reasons: first, the guidelines will help people understand where we draw the line in a matter of nuances,” explains Monika Bickert, vice president of global product management for Facebook.
“Second, providing these details makes it easier for everyone, including experts in different fields, to give us feedback so that we can improve the guidelines and decisions we make over time.”
The Community rules of Facebook are intended to promote freedom of expression and communication in a safe and free environment of any kind of abuse. They are based on three fundamental principles: security, so any content that encourages harm in the real world will be eliminated; The voice, to encompass varied viewpoints and to offer content of high media relevance and public interest; and fairness in implementing policies in a diverse and global community.
