During the private beta users have the option to flag a post (I haven't tried but I assume flagging is functional). Since it is still private beta the moderators have not been selected yet. Who gets notified of flagged posts?

The Stack Overflow staff (or a subset of) are moderators from the start of a private beta.

    This is correct. Typically, there are 7-10 Moderators from the Stack Overflow staff when the site is created. Aug 5, 2010 at 3:12

The "valued associates" are moderators from the start. Additionally, users with enough rep to have access to the 10k tools can see spam and offensive flags.

    During a private beta, nobody is going to have the rep high enough for access to the moderation tools. Though the rep points are lowered it takes a bit during the public beta for anyone to get close to the moderation tools at 2K. Aug 5, 2010 at 1:26

    @RebeccaChernoff It's 1k for private betas, 2k for public; so it is actually quite achievable. We're on day 3 at Aviation, and a few people are almost at mod tools. Dec 20, 2013 at 16:21
