Meta's stakeholders


JAN 18, 2023

In a sense, we consider our stakeholders to be every person or organisation that may be affected by the policies that we set out in the Facebook Community Standards and Instagram Community Guidelines, which apply to every post, photo and video shared on Facebook or Instagram.

Of course, because we can't meaningfully engage with billions of people, we seek out organisations that represent the interests of others, such as civil society and activist groups and experts in areas ranging from digital and civil rights, to anti-discrimination laws, free speech principles and other basic human rights.

We also engage with academics who have relevant expertise. They may not directly represent the interests of others the way civil society organisations do, but academics are important stakeholders by virtue of their extensive knowledge, which helps us create better policies for everyone.
