Jason Cobb, a moderator is an employee of Emoderation who has been working there since the early days of social media. He has seen just over about fifteen years the change from moderating texts from pre-smartphones to a big screen at camps to much more advanced moderating. He claims that things change very rapidly in social media since he started in around 2001.
- Spend any time working in social media and you soon realise how quickly things change.
- if you think back to how the internet was back in 2004, there was no social aspect whatsoever, the social web was still waiting to evolve.
- Emoderation has seen a lot of that change first hand. When we started, MySpace was still yet to launch, Facebook and Twitter were still a couple of years away
“The actual work process itself and the tasks and the skills we have, had to change and adapt.”
