Facebook's playbook for independent oversight board

Facebook recommended rules on Tuesday for how its independent oversight board will work and said a former human rights group director will lead the board's administrative staff.

The content appeals board, which will grow to about 40 members and will be able to overrule Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, is one of the company's high-profile responses to criticism over how it handles problematic content on Facebook and Instagram.

Facebook will name board members later in 2020, but it announced that Thomas Hughes, former executive director for freedom of expression rights group Article 19, will oversee the board's administrative staff, whose first offices will be in the United States and United Kingdom.
