    But LaPlante’s job isn’t the writing or design work you might expect in today’s gig economy. She’s an independent content moderator, tasked with keeping unwanted, sometimes graphic content off the social apps and websites we use every day. “So, it's like modern-day piecework, but with the added layer of psychological stress,” she says.

    There are human moderators like LaPlante all over the world, screening the user-generated content that swells across the internet every second — and doing so largely invisibly. While artificial intelligence can increasingly spot harmful content like child pornography or extremist messaging online, researcher Sarah Roberts says “the actual social media production cycle is much more complex” than automation can currently handle.
