Facebook reverses some decisions on removed posts

Facebook’s independent review body announced its first decisions Thursday, overturning four of Facebook’s decisions on content removal. 

The Oversight Board’s decision on its first five cases covered cases across Asia, Europe, North America and South America, and spanned Facebook’s policies over hate speech, misinformation and nudity. 

A spokesperson for Facebook said the company restored the posts in line with the board’s decisions on the same day they were announced.
