“Meta’s cross-check program prioritizes influential and powerful users of commercial value to Meta and as structured does not meet Meta’s human rights responsibilities and company values, with profound implications for users and global civil society,” Thomas Hughes, oversight board director, said in a statement.

According to the board, Meta appeared to be more concerned with not “provoking” VIPs and avoiding censorship charges than with balancing delicate problems of free expression and safety. It recommended for the “flawed” program to be overhauled in a report released on Tuesday, which included broad recommendations to bring the program in line with international principles and Meta’s claimed ideals. Meta said in a statement that it will evaluate and reply to the board’s nonbinding recommendations within 90 days.
