Socialmedia companies like Facebook or Twitter decide what is morally acceptable to show it’s users. They have certain guidelines that took years of development. In order to make sure these guidelines are respected, these companies use algorithms and content moderators to check if the content is suitable for it’s users.
This system comes with errors causing content to be deleted just because the algorithm or content moderator didn’t understand the context of picture/video. With this work I try to find the boundaries of these algorithms/moderators by posting porn pictures that are digitally altered so it’s context has changed.
The Instagram account was called @moraldecay16 and it was taken down November 22, 2016. The account was live for about 4 weeks. I posted 198 photos and the page was followed by 153 people.
