Whitelisted Facebook accounts are being allowed to break the rules

Facebook operates a system of whitelisting for prominent individuals including politicians, celebrities and sports stars.

The 5.8 million people on the ‘XCheck’ whitelist, including Donald Trump (prior to his banning from the site), US senator Elizabeth Warren and Brazilian footballer Neymar, are far less likely to be reprimanded for breaking the social media platform’s content rules.

The continued use of XCheck was reported by the Wall Street Journal, quoting an unnamed Facebook employee, who said the platform “routinely makes exceptions for powerful actors”.
