Community Moderation for Development
Abuse and harassment on the internet will prevent people from speaking up about important topics or voicing themselves. Online harassment can take several forms, one of which is designed to threaten writers and journalists, especially women, people of color, and members of the LGBTQ+ community, into self-censorship and silence.
It is also critical to provide a safe space for people with different points of view to express themselves in online communities. If done poorly, this may lead to polarisation or marginalisation, which means people avoid finding out other points of view or reinforce their own prejudices.
Conversations on social media sites and in digital communities should be moderated to ensure that they remain a respectful space for debate and discussion. Moderation is a mechanism for creating a thriving, respectful, and accepting online community. It’s an effective platform for communicating with users, and it helps under-represented groups to participate in discussions.
