Use Case: Spam, Scams, Duplicate Posts, and ToS violations
As a popular marketplace for many buyers and sellers, Carousell must constantly combat both fraud, duplicates and abuse risks. When Carousell partnered with Smyte, they were able to identify behavioral patterns to weed out duplicate posts and bad users with fraudulent intent. Smyte also worked with the Carousell team to ensure that users follow the marketplace’s terms of service and policies against prohibited content, duplicate posts and selling counterfeit goods.
Use Case: Cyberbullying
Social networking and user generated content can have pitfalls for teens, the majority user demographic at Reveal.
