    Goals / Remit

    The Oversight Board’s goal is to make social media better fairer, safer and more accessible to users. We do this by providing an independent check on Meta's approach to content moderation on Facebook and Instagram, ensuring respect for freedom of expression and human rights. We push Meta to apply rules and make decisions in a way that is principled, transparent and treats all users fairly.
