In a very special podcast Chris Gray, tells us about the traumatic experience in his former role as a Facebook moderator. Chris outlines the process and how clinical the rules were and why the productivity demands left him mentally and physically drained. This is a fascinating insight into one of the biggest tech companies in the world and how they use a “outsourcing” model to remove themselves from the process of content moderating.
Chris explains about how this job has changed his personality and gives us an understanding of the pressures on the people asked to filter some of the hardest to look at content on the internet. We are very grateful for his time.
