Facebook To Employ 3000 People Worldwide – Mark Zuckerberg

An Hilarious Meme

Billionaire Facebook founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg has taken to his
official Facebook account to announce the company’s plan of increasing
his workforce globally by 3000.

This news is coming of the heels
of frequent abuse of the social media platform. He also emphasized on
the need to make our communities a safer haven for everyone.

See the post below.

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 reflecting on how we can do better for our community.
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.

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 process for doing it quickly.

These
reviewers will also help us get better at removing things we don’t
allow on Facebook like hate speech and child exploitation. And we’ll
keep working with local community groups and law enforcement who are in
the best position to help someone if they need it — either because
they’re about to harm themselves, or because they’re in danger from
someone else.

In addition to investing in more people, we’re also
building better tools to keep our community safe. We’re going to make
it simpler to report problems to us, faster for our reviewers to
determine which posts violate our standards and easier for them to
contact law enforcement if someone needs help. As these become available
they should help make our community safer.
This is important. Just
last week, we got a report that someone on Live was considering suicide.
We immediately reached out to law enforcement, and they were able to
prevent him from hurting himself. In other cases, we weren’t so
fortunate.

No one should be in this situation in the first place,
but if they are, then we should build a safe community that gets them
the help they need.
