We’re going to tell you everything you need to know about this brand new API. Let’s start with the basics.
What is an API?
Application Programming Interface or API for short is a set of procedures and protocols that allow two different applications to communicate with each other. In other words, an API is a tool that allows two apps to talk to each other. This is done with the use of protocols and procedures that allow for data, as well as commands and tasks, to be exchanged between two systems.
The goal of an API is to improve the efficiency and productivity of software development by allowing other applications access to features or data that would otherwise need to be developed from scratch.
What is content moderation?
Content moderation is process in which people examine user-generated content (UGC) online before it is allowed to be published. There are many reasons why this is done, including the fact that automated systems like search engines aren’t always perfect at catching offensive content, or because companies want to monitor what their users are posting.
This process allows them to make sure that the content being posted does not violate the terms of service for the website or social media platform where it is being posted (for example, by containing obscene language or graphic violence). It also can help them remove content that is offensive or harassing towards another user or group of users online.
It’s common for content moderators to review posts and comments made by users on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. They also may review content that has been flagged by other users for offensive or abusive language. Sometimes moderators will even have to remove posts or comments that they believe violate the law or
