Facebook said in its draft charter at the time that the first member of the committee would last for three years. Nick Clegg (Nick Clegg), head of global affairs, said at the time that details of the committee's membership and oversight process would be finalized in six months.

In the past six months, Facebook has asked more than 650 people for feedback on the draft plan at a seminar held in 88 countries.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (Mark Zuckerberg) has said that on Facebook's social networking platform, which is used by about 2.4 billion people around the world, it is not up to Facebook to decide what is acceptable.

Facebook said today that the company will finalize the charter of the supervisory committee in August.

Facebook said that people attending the seminar generally believe that Facebook employees should not enter the supervisory committee. Moreover, Facebook should not remove members for no reason. If you insist on the removal, you need to give reasons.

Other recommendations include that the oversight committee should be able to choose its own case; the oversight committee's decision should set a precedent for future cases; the oversight committee should have the power to influence Facebook's content policy.

In addition, the experts involved in the discussion expressed concern about the independence of the supervisory committee.

Facebook has long been accused of doing too little to stop hate speech, incite violence, bullying and other content that violates its "community standards."

In the past year, Facebook has increased the implementation of these standards, hired more than 30,000 people to monitor content, and focused on improving the "security and security" on the platform. Of course, many of them are contract workers with lower wages.

Even so, Facebook can't avoid some inappropriate content on its platform. E.g,

In March, a shooting incident occurred in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing 51 people. The suspects in the shooting case broadcast live on Facebook, and the video lasted for 17 minutes.
