SALT LAKE CITY (AP)–A Facebook executive says a new quasi-independent oversight board will soon be making decisions on some of the platform’s most difficult content questions.

Facebook announced today that the board will consider a relatively small number of cases after all appeals of Facebook decisions have been exhausted.

Board members will be named in December and start hearing cases in early 2020.
