Meta’s system of appeals against its decisions to remove content on Facebook and Instagram received roughly 1.1 million cases in its first year. The disputed posts, most of which originated in the US, Canada or Europe, had largely been removed for either violence, hate speech or bullying. Of the 20 cases about which The Oversight Board published decisions, it ruled against Meta 14 times. It had initially shortlisted 130 cases to investigate, but Meta agreed up front that it had been wrong on 51 of those occasions. Anybody – including Meta itself – can appeal to it if they disagree with a decision to remove content.
