A System To Detect Inappropriate Messages In Online Social Networks
As social networking is growing at a rapid pace, it is vital that we work on improving its management. Research
has shown that the content present in online social networks may have significant influence on impressionable minds. If such
platforms are misused, it will lead to negative consequences. Detecting insults or inappropriate messages continues to be one
of the most challenging aspects of Online Social Networks (OSNs) today. We address this problem through a Soft Text
Classifier approach using various Machine Learning algorithms. The proposed system acts as a screening mechanism that
alerts the user about such messages. The messages are classified according to their subject matter and each comment is
labeled for the presence of profanity and insults.
