Facebook Begins Testing Advanced Crowd-Sourced Content Moderation

In an effort to better remove inappropriate content, Facebook is testing out what it calls Facebook Community Council, according to new Council member and Boing Boing guest poster Andrea James. Like the name suggests, this app gives users the ability to evaluate content for various types of offensiveness, or as James quote the group’s motto: “To harness the power and intelligence of Facebook users to support us in keeping Facebook a trusted and vibrant community.”
