As social media and user-generated content have grown in the last decade, the need for so-called content moderators has grown dramatically. True, the content moderation profession isn’t exactly privacy, but there are overlaps and lots of parallels. Both professions help maintain user trust and safety. Both are tasked with applying policies and principles in complex technological settings while ensuring transparency, due process, accountability and individual recourse. To help explore these dynamic issues, we’re hosting a Content Moderation Section Forum today from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., replete with a talented set of CoMo pros. Last year, IAPP CEO J. Trevor Hughes, CIPP, highlighted some of the parallels between the professions in this post for Privacy Perspectives.
