We support the following changes to Facebook’s policies and will act to urge the company’s leadership to adopt them:
Do not amplify posts and groups that promote hate, violence, or disinformation or recommend them to other Facebook users.
Implement circuit breakers to temporarily slow or stop newly viral content while it’s fact checked, such as the mechanisms in use in the stock market.
Shift moderation resources to focus on superspreader high-volume content from the most distributed sources instead of focusing it on small grassroots activists; invest in improving non-English content review.
Correct disinformation by displaying a correction to every Facebook user who was exposed to misinformation, as defined by independent fact-checkers.
Adopt a data minimization model that limits transfers of personal information to third parties and allows users to indicate what kinds of information they are willing to share for personalized advertising – and what kinds of information they aren’t.
Apply the same standards to all Facebook users and advertisers. Governments, political leaders and political advertisers should not be exempt from the standards others are held to.
Refuse service to anyone who uses the platform to disrupt elections in the US and abroad.
