Why should you integrate Rocket.Chat with Mod Perspective app

Content moderation is a significant tool to foster healthy online communities and ensure digital well-being. It plays a crucial role in maintaining the quality, integrity, and safety of a platform by safeguarding users from harmful or inappropriate content. 

But, moderation can be quite challenging due to its subjective nature. Different cultures and individuals have varying ideas about what is inappropriate or offensive. This makes it difficult to create a universal set of rules. Another pain point is the sheer volume of content that must be reviewed. This makes the process time-consuming and resource-intensive. Moderators often find themselves dealing with disturbing and harmful content. This can lead to emotional distress and burnout. Additionally, malicious content, like disguised hate speech, is becoming more sophisticated. This can pose significant challenges to even the most effective content moderation systems.

In such cases, using moderation apps such as Mod Assist and Mod Perspective enhances efficiency and speed in screening online content. By using these apps, organizations can carry out the moderation process continuously and in real-time. It ensures more consistent and unbiased moderation decisions by reducing human error. Finally, it can reduce the workload on human moderators by automating key moderation tasks. 

Note: For privacy reasons, the app is designed not to operate in private rooms by default and consequently, it won't report messages from such rooms.

However, if you wish to enable moderation for these private rooms as well, you will have to individually admit the App into these rooms, as a user. Remember to add these private rooms under the App's settings, in the section where you specify the rooms for the app to moderate. This will serve as two-factor authentication for accessing private rooms.
