TechCrunch: Facebook to add 3,000 to team reviewing posts with hate speech, crimes, and other harming posts

TechCrunch: Facebook to add 3,000 to team reviewing posts with hate speech, crimes, and other harming posts. “A week after news broke of multiple videos of suicides posted on Facebook remaining on the site for hours, the company has announced a new plan to add 3,000 more people to its operations team to screen for harmful videos and other posts to respond to them more quickly in the future.” This is great – IF Facebook is hiring these people in such a way that they can get mental health support for doing this difficult and potentially traumatic job.
