Content Moderation

FB Leaked Slides.

Over the past sixteen months, I have been researching content policy, with a focus on Facebook. While plenty of work has looked at the practice of ‘moderation’ (the removal of content my a global network of contractors), less work has examined the employees and processes which create the rules that those moderators then work to enforce. I have a few projects in the pipeline here, and have published articles on moderation in Wired Magazine and the Los Angeles Review of Books.
