Mozilla Wants to Create a Kinder Social Network
Mozilla.Social is relying on aggressive content moderation to create a social platform that's welcoming, open, and kind.
Mozilla's Mastodon instance doesn't allow misinformation or harassment. They won't stand for public shaming or any explicit or veiled threats either. This is because Mozilla wants a kinder social network.
In December 2022, Mozilla announced that it would create its own Mastodon server, hosted at Mozilla.Social and that the nonprofit would rely on aggressive content moderation policies to create a social platform that would be more welcoming, open, and kind. It’s now in private beta and you can join the wait list.
Creating a kinder social network aligns with the nonprofit's Pledge for a Healthy Internet, which in part "promotes civil discourse, human dignity, and individual expression."
