The employees told the leadership of the company that its organisational structure combining content policy and government affairs under the same umbrella is fundamentally flawed.
In a letter sent by members of the social-media giantâs internal group for Muslim employees, called Muslim@, staffers from India, the US and Middle East said Facebook needed to make its policy-enforcement process for high-profile users more transparent and less susceptible to political influence.
Facebook claimed it had an open culture. âThis letter is a prime example of the type of open culture we value at Facebook,â a company spokesman said in a statement to WSJ. âLeaders at Facebook appreciate the honest, candid feedback they receive. We stand against anti-Muslim hate and bigotry and welcome the opportunity to continue the conversation on these issues.â
In the letter addressed to the FB Leadership, the employees asked for a review of why, although some material from a politician had been removed, he remains on the platform, the WSJ reported.
