Content moderation refers to the process of monitoring, reviewing, and regulating user-generated content (such as text, images, videos, or comments).
It involves the examination and filtering of content to ensure it complies with legal requirements, ethical standards, and platform-specific rules.
The aim of content moderation is to create a safe and respectful online environment, protecting users from harmful or offensive content while promoting healthy and constructive interactions.
It is an ongoing and challenging task due to the vast amount of user-generated content that is generated and shared on the internet.
Content moderation is a crucial function for various types of companies and online platforms that rely on user-generated content.
