Meta's Content Policy Stakeholder Engagement team regularly works with external stakeholders who strengthen our policies by bringing global knowledge and feedback into the policy development process.
This team builds relationships with NGOs, academics and other experts, and engages with a broad spectrum of civil society groups around the world, to better understand the impact of our policies.
We created a policy on harmful stereotypes. As part of our approach to hate speech and harmful stereotypes, we convened several academic roundtables and connected with external stakeholders who helped us identify the risks associated with stereotypes in their communities.
We adopted a definition of "public figure" for our bullying and harassment policies by engaging with academics, civil society organisations, free expression experts, human rights defenders, journalists and celebrities.
In drafting our policies on adult nudity, we listened to a variety of perspectives, including those of family safety organisations, artists, museum curators, the LGBTQ+ community and natural birth advocates.
To inform our policy definition and criteria for state media, we consulted with more than 65 global experts specialising in media, governance and human rights. This input was crucial in helping us understand the different ways and degrees to which governments exert editorial control over certain media entities.
