Facebook critics start rival, independent ‘oversight board’

 — 25 septembre 2020
A group of prominent Facebook critics, including one of the social network's early investors and a journalist facing jail time in the Philippines, are launching their version of an "oversight board" to rival the company's own.

The group says Facebook is taking too long to set up its oversight panel, which they argue is too limited in its scope and autonomy.

The critics, who include early investor Roger McNamee, Filipino journalist Maria Ressa and Shoshana Zuboff, author of « Surveillance Capitalism, » are warning that Facebook is already being used to undermine the integrity of the U.S. and are calling for « proper independent scrutiny » of the company.

The group, however, has no authority over Facebook and it is not an actual « board. » Rather, the group says it was started to sound the alarm about Facebook’s role in the coming election.
