Facebook’s stakeholders

UPDATED

JUL 29, 2021

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

Of course, because we can’t meaningfully engage with billions of people, we seek out organizations 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 organizations do, but academics are important stakeholders by virtue of their extensive knowledge, which helps us create better policies for everyone.
