Content approvals are becoming a more common form of censorship. Even if you are regularly approved, the fact that your content needs to be reviewed at all is the issue.
It’s impossible for someone in a manual review to always be unbiased and as such, I’ve run into many situations where this has become a problem on various platforms. I’d like to specifically talk about these platforms and then cover content approvals in general in how they affect creators and free speech.
Brighteon – Content approvals
Trybe – Content approvals
Cos.tv – Content approvals
YouTube – Community strike – Retroactive blacklist for content
Vimeo & Dailymotion – Banned
The ethos behind most alternative social platforms, crypto-monetized and blockchain platforms is typically one of freedom and decentralization. So, the entire idea of needing to have your content approved goes against these values and does not align with what most people are looking for on these platforms.
I will not recommend nor endorse a platform that has content approvals. Even if it’s coming from a good place, it creates the opportunity for abuse to happen. This is amplified the more centralized a platform is. The best example of a fully decentralized platform to lead as an example to aim for is the Hive network.
