Posted by at 3:17 pm on January 28, 2020

Facebook has picked British human rights expert Thomas Hughes to lead its new oversight board.

The independent board will have the power to override Facebook decisions on contentious material.

It will review videos, photos, and other content that Facebook removes.

Mr Hughes started in the role a week ago, but Facebook is yet to announce who will sit on the board with him.

He was previously executive director at Article 19, a non-profit British human rights organisation.
