5.8 *million*? Either the bar for “high profile” isn’t very high or I’ve greatly underestimated the number of popular people/pages. >Most Facebook employees have the power to add users to the XCheck system for whitelisting status, a term used to describe high-profile accounts that don’t have to follow the rules. But the Journal viewed a 2019 audit that found Facebook doesn’t always keep a record of who it whitelists and why Low bar. Got it.
