Designing decentralized moderation

Every social network needs ways to filter out spam and unwanted content
  • Third-party tooling
  • Relative reputation systems
  • Machine learning solutions
  • Economic incentives
  • Blocklists/Allowlists
  • Network-wide content aggregators that curate content across servers, as well as provide spam and moderation signals back to servers as a service
  • Opt-in spam filter services that users voluntarily upload spam messages to when they move them to trash
  • Training methods that operate over private datasets, such as federated learning
