“The comments section has been seen, in the past, like the wild west of the internet: enormous and largely untamed,” said Rob Rakowitz, Initiative Lead at WFA for GARM. “But by prioritizing user experience and safety, OpenWeb has become the leader in making this important part of the internet safer for users, brands and platforms alike. For this reason, we’re excited to partner with OpenWeb to support each other’s missions.”

GARM was created in the summer of 2019 and is a flagship project of the World Economic Forum for shaping the future of media, entertainment and culture. Every member of this alliance will address the needs and concerns of publishers to encourage healthy and safe conversations while managing harmful content on digital media platforms and its monetization via advertising.
