Facebook to Hire 3,000 to Monitor for Suicide, Murder Videos

Facebook will hire an additional 3,000 people to help monitor videos on the social-media platform for potential crimes, CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg announced Wednesday. The new hires will “review the millions of reports we get every week, and improve the process for doing it quickly,” Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page. Facebook has come under fire recently after a string of killings and violent attacks were broadcast on its Facebook Live platform. “If we’re going to build a safe community, we need to respond quickly. We’re working to make these videos easier to report so we can take the right action sooner—whether that’s responding quickly when someone needs help or taking a post down,” Zuckerberg wrote.
