Community Standards
2018/04/26
This document is being depicted as Facebook's "content moderation standard" but it isn't that. It's a document aimed at users and describes what Facebook is calling its "community standards" but is more like a plain-language version of its terms of service. This is an important distinction because the concept of "community standards" is originally (and still!) a representation of what the community thinks is appropriate, not a service provider. More...

I don't completely agree with all of the indices, though: for example, I do not see a deeper thread as evidence of a deeper discussion - it often simply reflects a back-and-forth exchange between a minor sub-group.
