Ask HN: How is Snapchat getting away with no content moderation?
I've been laughing/screaming in confusion at how ridiculously laissez-faire Snapchat's spotlight feed is. I was using it one day and encountered some mildly sexual content and reported it. I was mildly shocked that they responded within minutes that it didn't violate their terms. I've been on a strange journey of intentionally watching explicit content to get Snapchat to recommend me more and more sexual content. I have reported videos of women literally striping down to nothing and smelling their underwear and everytime Snapchat has emailed me back to tell me that it didn't violate their policy. I also see that Snapchat's minimum age requirement is 13. How is Snapchat showing pornography to minors with no repercussions?
