Facebook Finally Has a Good Idea | The New York Times

I would like to formally apply to be judge and jury over Mark Zuckerberg.

And it’s not just my dream job if Facebook’s newest idea to police itself better goes as planned.

The company calls its latest effort to manage the controversial information on its giant social-media service the Oversight Board. The lofty idea is to create a global group — what some are calling a Supreme Court — by year’s end and make it fully operational by next November. The independent board will judge appeals from users on material that has been taken down from the platform by the company, and it will review policy decisions that the company has submitted to the board.
