Interacting with our Audiences

Postmoderation

Many user-generated content areas on the BBC site are postmoderated. Postmoderation allows users to see their messages being published without delay while every message is read by a moderator. Postmoderation is likely to be suitable, for example, for sites which attract robust debate about current affairs. Sites which have a history of controversy or polarised debate, personal or racist abuse or potentially defamatory comments are likely to benefit from the level of attention provided by postmoderation.
