  • Behind a safe social media site, there are people who are working to view and delete traumatic videos and images for the sake of everyone
  • In her post, she expressed her sadness knowing that there are Filipinos being outsourced with this kind of job
  • Content moderators receive limited training and inadequate psychological support, which result in having post-traumatic stress disorder or, much worse, is commit suicide

How much do you know about social media?

Most of the people love to use social media, especially Facebook, to post pictures and video which can be seen by anyone. But some people are posting offensive and vulgar pictures and videos, which is against the guidelines of the social media sites.

Without having the knowledge, behind safe social media sites there are people who are working to view and delete traumatic videos and images for the sake of everyone.

Jasmine Curtis-Smith, who plays the mother of Sahaya in the new teleserye “SAHAYA” of GMA network, retweeted a post of BBC Three featuring content moderators of social media sites like Facebook. On her post, she expresses her sadness knowing that there are Filipinos being outsourced with this kind of job.

Knowing that these workers are having an extremely traumatic and highly sensitive job, they are being poorly paid and have lack of psychological support.

On a documentary video of BBCThree, they have unleashed the dirtiest secret of being a content moderator. Content moderators are responsible for moderating the social media feed which is to be seen or not. Social media sites like Facebook itself have been outsourcing thousands of Filipinos to delete content that violates their guidelines. Each worker has a target of 25,000 images to review content that can include terrorist propaganda, child sexual abuse, pornography and graphic violence for 8 to 10-hour shifts and some of their workers were only 18 years old.

“You are not allowed to commit one mistake, you could ruin more than one life, it could trigger a war, it could trigger bullying, it could trigger killing.”

One said that when they started the training, they didn’t have any idea what a content moderator was. The employer just simply explained what they would see and what tools to use. But in reality, it was very traumatic for persons to witness such kind of pictures and photos being uploaded. Since they have already signed a contract, quitting the job is prohibited.

“The most shocking that I saw was a girl, around six years of age, sucking a dick.”

Content moderators receive limited training and inadequate psychological support, which result in having post-traumatic stress disorder or, much worse, is to commit suicide.

They consider themselves like  policemen who remove violent content to make it safe for the user.

“The world that we are living in today right now I believed, is not really healthy, we are just like policemen. I’ve seen hundreds of beheading that’s not even pictures, even the videos –a two-minute act of beheading it’s really challenging. Skip images can be marked as a mistake, pressurizing every decision they make.

One of their tasks is to decide when to stop live video streams and some of those horrifying videos remain in their memory.

“It seems like it was a joke, we didn’t know it was real, he was attempting to kill himself, as long as he hasn’t committed suicide we’re not allowed to stop his live stream, because if we stop it, the one who gets in trouble kills himself.”

And having this type of job,one must not let these video affect you; but some can’t avoid being affected by what they see.

These people are not well compensated but they have no other choice because it is their only means to survive.

2 GMA Network prime time teleseryes to bid goodbye soon

2 GMA Network prime time teleseryes to bid goodbye soon

[mashshare]
  • Onanay and Pamilya Roces are both rumored to end soon.
  • One has hinted about the finale of the series and the other has been having a hard time keeping up with its ratings.

Two Kapuso teleseryes are rumored to be ending in-not-so-distant-future.

The first one is the drama series Onanay, starring Mikee Quintos, Kate Valdez, Jo Berry, Cherie Gil, and Nora Aunor.

The story revolves around Natalie (Valdez) and Maila (Quintos) who receive different treatment by their mother Onay (Berry) who has Achondroplasia.

In the recent episodes, Natalie’s dislike toward her sister grew even more as she thought that Maila left her after being injured. They were supposed to be friends again, she still can’t help but feel the hate blooming inside her.

Helena (Gil) has taken advantage of the situation and brainwashed her even more to think that Natalie didn’t take care of her.

A teaser video has ended saying, “Sa malapit na pagtatapos ng Onanay…”

The show has been strong in terms of its ratings as it continuously catches up with its time rival, ABS-CBN’s Ngayon at Kailanman.

The second show rumored show to be nearing its end is Pamilya Roces, starring Carla Abellana, Gabbi Garcia, Sophie Albert, Shaira Diaz, and Jasmine Curtis-Smith.

It is said to end anytime soon without even completing its first season due to poor ratings and is even having difficulty beating the rival show’s ratings, which is ABS-CBN’s Halik.

GMA Network has a six-week policy–if a series doesn’t rate well in the first six weeks of airing, the Network will give them a seventh week to pick up but if the show doesn’t improve, the show will suffer the consequence of saying goodbye.

Netizens slam Purefoods Sexy Chix for offensive commercial

Netizens slam Purefoods Sexy Chix for offensive commercial

[mashshare]

Companies invest millions of pesos in TV ads to send their brand’s message to the public.

For years, they try to come up with the most effective, memorable and captivating TV ads that can either make or break a brand. But what if things don’t go as planned?

Take the case of the Purefoods Sexy Chix commercial featuring Kapatid star Jasmine Curtis which is getting negative criticisms from netizens for allegedly sending a wrong message to TV viewers.

In the 30-second video clip, Jasmine can be seen working out with two other ladies who eagerly shared their diet secrets. While one woman revealed she has been a vegetarian for a month, the other woman disclosed she has been consuming tuna for three days.

In the TVC, they replaced the two women’s heads with the type of food they consume. Meanwhile, Jasmine’s, who highly recommends Purefood Sexy Chix, remained pretty much the same.

Unfortunately, netizens found the concept of the commercial quite offensive.

Check out their comments posted on Jasmine Curtis’s Facebook page.

Interestingly, Jasmine’s older sister Anne Curtis is the endorser of Century Tuna. If that’s the case, then we think the Dyesebel-star is the yummiest tuna you’ll ever catch.
