Facebook is seeking public consultation as it develops an Oversight Board to look at content decisions.

The request for input is an interesting development with the announcement saying "Today, we’re opening a public consultation process to help us answer questions around the design for this Oversight Board. This is another part of our ongoing, global engagement with a wide range of organizations, think tanks and researchers to determine how best to empower this entity to render independent judgment on some of Facebook’s most important and challenging content decisions."
