How do I appeal Facebook's content decision to the Oversight Board?

There are two types of content decisions you can appeal to the Oversight Board: a decision about your content or a decision about content by others that you’ve reported.

If you disagree that your content should've been taken down and you want to appeal to the Oversight Board, you must first go through the request a review process.

If you reported content from others that wasn't taken down and you want to appeal to the Oversight Board to have the content removed, you must first go through the request another review process.
Before you can appeal Facebook’s content decision to the Oversight Board, you must first go through the request a review process on your content or on the content you reported.
If we’ve reviewed your content or the content you reported twice and you still disagree with our decision, you may be eligible to appeal that decision to the Oversight Board. Keep in mind that not all content and content decisions will be eligible for appeal but we’re adding more options.
Once you submit the appeal, the Oversight Board will decide whether or not to review it. The board only selects a certain number of eligible appeals to review, so they may not choose yours.
At any point following the submission of your appeal, you’ll be able to check the appeal status by logging on to the Oversight Board’s website using your reference number. Keep in mind that you have 15 days from when the decision was made to appeal to the Oversight Board. After 15 days, the window to appeal a decision will expire and you'll no longer be able to submit it.
