Head of Creator Experience @ Vocal
A Platform’s Responsibility to Act With Purpose
It’s a conversation that my team and I find ourselves coming back to time and time again. When we talk about the future of Vocal, or conceptualize anything from new features to social media campaigns, it’s essential that we can identify exactly why we’re doing what we’re doing, and exactly who we’re doing it for. If we can’t identify the answers to those questions clearly and concisely, or we aren’t satisfied with those answers, then we know we have a lot more work to do. It’s part of how we make sure that we are always putting our creators first in each and every decision we find ourselves making.
How the Vocal Moderation Team is Keeping You Safe
The world is changing, and changing quickly. At Vocal, we’ve always understood that it’s our responsibility to keep up with that change. Having launched Vocal immediately following the 2016 election in the US, we knew we were at a place culturally where if platforms weren’t taking a proactive approach to malicious content, they were already falling behind.
What It's Like To Be: A Sociotherapist
When it comes to social workers, a certain stock image is likely what comes to mind: a stern, no-nonsense presence, a clipboard in one hand and metaphorical red tape in the other; an agent of the state, likely with the best intentions but ultimately lacking a certain level of compassion.
Why All Creators Should Be Storytelling
Creators come in all shapes and sizes—podcasters, novelists, poets, musicians, artists, enthusiasts, vloggers, and more—but we all have one thing in common: we have stories to share with the world.
