. Videos livestreaming murder or depicting kidnapping and torture have made international headlines even when the crimes themselves wouldn’t have, simply because they were on Facebook. Chief executive Mark Zuckerberg announced Wednesday Facebook Inc. will hire 3,000 more people over the next year to speed up the removal of videos showing murder, suicide and other violent acts. the workers will be in addition to the 4,500 people who already review posts now. It is a known fact, actually many videos shocked viewers with their violence. “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 said. The company did not say where the jobs would be located. The world’s largest social network has now 1.9 billion monthly users. It receives millions of reports from users each week. The workers who monitor material generally work on contract in places such as India and the Philippines. Policing live video streams is especially difficult, as viewers don’t know what will happen during content exposure.
