OpenWeb is building the social layer of the web. We’re a platform through which the brands you love host active, vibrant communities. Brands choose to partner with OpenWeb because we have an unmatched track record of creating online spaces that encourage an open, engaging community experience while maintaining a high standard of safety for community members.
- Our technology strives to incentivize and promote healthy conversations. We continuously improve our technology to promote constructive, reciprocal conversations over toxic (even if extremely engaging) user contributions.
- We endeavor to demote and remove toxic conversations. We build and implement tools such as: Language detection, user reputation scores, community signals, sorting algorithms, and more to help detect and remove or reduce the prominence of toxic content.
However, we know that every community is different, and “safety” can have different meanings in different contexts. We work closely with our brand and publisher partners to reflect their community’s values.
In other words, while we maintain a base level of community safety across our network to which all of OpenWeb partners agree, communities hosted by OpenWeb have their own individual sets of standards enforced to the satisfaction of the partner.
Think of it this way: OpenWeb’s network-wide moderation standards set a strong and stable foundation upon which the sites you visit may choose to build additional sets of rules for their community. Some may allow certain words, behaviors, etc. while others may not. OpenWeb’s role is to enforce these rules and uphold a standard of safety that both we and our brand partner find suitable for their community.
