Moderator Controls - Our Community Platform gives us greater control over the trust levels that we provide to each joining member, and each participates on our community page. Social media platforms, generally only allow for admin and moderators to either accept a member into the community or reject them. But in our community, we can assign trust levels so that new comments have temporary restrictions on their privileges when then first join. These restrictions are removed over time as our software detects good behavior patterns.
Personal & Corporate Identities - Social media platform require users to state their names and to "friend" or "follow" one another based on each others profile. And while this philosophy is good for smaller communities and groups, it doesn't always work well with larger online communities like Roatan Online Community. Roatan Online is a large community with an array of contributors and members. Members are allowed to use their corporate names as their primary brand or username. Members can also opt to use avatars for fun or the benefit of their privacy. In many ways, avatars allow users to ask and or comment freely without the exposure of being ridiculed. in years past, this anonymity also enabled users to be disrespectful towards one another, but that is something Roatan Online Community has eliminated by having strong moderators and trust levels.
Quality Moderators - Our moderators are the same across all channels and discussion boards. Social media admins change based on founded the group. Social media groups vary cover a variety of topics, and each group has a different moderator. Response times vary from one group to another, etc. But at Roatan Online, our community moderators are the same across all channels. Our moderators are well connected across industries and service types and can usually get quality responses quickly.
