WHAT? Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg To Hire 3000 More Moderators, Guess Why?


Facebook says it will hire another 3,000 people to review videos of crime and suicides following murders shown live.
.
That’s on top of the 4,500 people Facebook already has for such reviews.
.
The announcement comes from CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a blog post Wednesday.
.
According to him, “Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen people hurting themselves and others on Facebook — either live or in video posted later. it’s heartbreaking, and I’ve been reflected on how we can do better for our community”
.
He also added that, “Over the next year, we’ll be adding 3,000 people to our community operations team around the world — on top of the 4,500 we have today to review the millions of reports we get every week, and improve the processfor doing it quickly”.
.
Facebook has been criticized recently for not doing enough to prevent videos — such as a murder in Cleveland, a killing of a baby in Thailand — from spreading on its service.
.
Videos and posts that glorify violence are against Facebook’s terms of service.
.
But in most cases, users have to report them to the company for them to be reviewed and possibly removed.
