Mark Zuckerberg’s social network will be using a program that puts in a sort of “whitelist” millions of users considered as VIPs, who thus manage to be subject to different content moderation rules. The information is advanced by Wall Street Journal (WSJ), who had access to an internal document on the matter.
The WSJ states that, in 2020, there would be at least 5.8 million users with VIP status, in a universe of around 2.89 billion users globally.
According to the newspaper, football player Neymar will be among the list of VIP users. In 2019, the player was accused of rape and shared intimate photographs of the woman who accused him on Facebook. The WSJ writes that, in theory, this type of content should have been promptly deleted, but it didn’t happen immediately. According to the documents, at least 56 million users on Instagram and Facebook were able to see this post while it was not removed.
A Facebook spokesperson has already told the Wall Street Journal that the social network is gradually abandoning this practice of “whitelisting”.
