Users of social networks Facebook and Instagram were allowed to appeal the decision to remove posts and refuse to block them. This was announced on Wednesday, April 14, by the Daily Mail .

Users can appeal messages, photos and video content, as well as comments, statuses and promotions that, in their opinion, cannot stay online.

It is noted that the decision will be made by the company's supervisory board, which consists of 20 members.

“Giving users the ability to appeal content that they want removed from Facebook is a significant empowerment for the board,” said Thomas Hughes, Administrative Director of the Oversight Board.

In turn, the vice president of Facebook, Guy Rosen, clarified in his blog that such an innovation can be used right now.

Earlier, on February 8, Facebook decided to introduce new rules under which moderators will delete information about vaccination against COVID-19 if it is considered false or contrary to official data.
