The details about the makeup and appeals process will be resolved after a series of workshops over the next six months according to the Nick Clegg who is appointed by Facebook recently as the leader of the global affairs, wrote in a blog post initiating the charter.

At the news conference in Brussels, Clegg also told the company will enforce the rules and safeguards around political advertisements for preventing the foreign interruption in an election, including those in Europe this year.

The social media giant confronted pressure from the regulators and the public after the revelation of the last year, that British consultancy Cambridge Analytical had acquired data improperly on millions of US users to attempt election advertising.
