(Reuters) – Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:)’s independent oversight board said on Tuesday it has asked the social networking giant to provide clarity on the system it uses to review content decisions relating to some high-profile users.

Following a Wall Street Journal story last week, the board is now investigating whether Facebook allows high-profile users to be exempt from certain or all its rules.
