Albin Social, the company behind, is micro sized and can’t afford to offer its services to the whole world.

Zone C – North America

Selected countries:

Selection method

Countries are selected based on a number of factors in combination:

  • Physical closeness to EU, Albin Social’s core region.
  • Perceived closeness to EEA laws and regulations
  • Languages including added complexity from right-to-left writing or non-Latin characters
  • The perceived difficulty in finding enough EU-based moderators with language skills
  • Level of L2 English skills among the population
  • EU membership-application or association-agreement
  • Ongoing war, conflicts or other complications
  • Potential costs and paths to revenue
  • Common service providers and platforms
  • Is the country so big that a small complication become a large problem

There’s nothing wrong with left to right writing or non-Latin characters, they may even be better, it just creates extra cost for Albin Social to deal with that extra complexity.
