Help us & share your story: (Social Media) Content Moderators wanted for anonymous research interviews.

Social media content moderators provide an important and vital work for social media companies and users. Despite rising awareness there is still little systematic research available about the work experiences of those who keep the internet “clean”. If you are working as a content moderator for a social media platform, we would be very pleased if you participated in our study. We know that this might be a big step for you. In case you are hesitating: we can assure you that we will ensure your anonymity. Your participation would be a great contribution to systematically and scientifically grasp work experiences and coping strategies of content moderators.

The interview will be conducted in German or English and will take 1 to 1,5 hours. We will meet in a safe environment (online via Zoom or offline) and your name, employer, the social network you moderated for or other personal details will be anonymized for further research and under no circumstances published anywhere. The interview will revolve around questions about your every-day working experiences and different aspects of your work (e.g. tasks, organization of your work and work environment, stress and coping strategies). Please let us know if you want to participate in our study by filling out the form below. We are looking forward to getting to know you!

Thank you in advance!
