Facebook, whoch has managed to transcend geographic borders to draw in a population equal to roughly a third of all human life on Earth, has made its final charter for a “Supreme Court” of Facebook public. The company pledges to launch this initiative by November of next year.

The new Oversight Board will have five key powers, according to a charter (PDF) Facebook released yesterday. It can “request that Facebook provide information” it needs in a timely manner; it can make interpretations of Facebook standards and guidelines “in light of Facebook’s articulated values”; and it can instruct the company to allow or remove content, to uphold or reverse a decision leading to content being permitted or removed, and to issue “prompt, written explanations of the board’s decisions.”
