Facebook formed an independent board, which will be able to overturn Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s decisions on whether individual pieces of content should be allowed on Facebook and Instagram. This board was formed as a result of criticism of how Facebook handles “problematic content”
The “oversight board” will include none other than Nobel Laureate Tawakkol Karman, the Yemeni woman who became one of the faces of the Arab Spring uprising in 2011, Paul Joseph Watson pointed out.
The Islah party, regarded as a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is viewed by Saudi Arabia and the UAE as a terrorist organization, distanced itself from Karman and suspended her from its ranks after she criticized Saudi Arabia and the UAE in 2011, Reuters reported
Karman previously denounced arrests of Muslim Brotherhood members and opposed the move to bar the Muslim Brotherhood from participating in Egyptian politics.
Facebook forms a “supreme court” which will decide what content to allow or remove from the world’s largest social media platform. One of the members of the supreme court is notorious Muslim Brotherhood activist Tawakkol Karman. pic.twitter.com/m2PHDvhi9c

So in other words, someone who supports radical Islam will be one of the people to decide what you get to read on Facebook.
How does that make you feel ?
