Facebook to Catch and Remove Streaming Violence

Reuters news agency reports today that Facebook will hire 3000 workers over the next year to respond to reports and remove inappropriate material. Facebook users have posted videos of violent acts including murder, suicide and rape. It was not clear from the report where the company will locate the employees or if they will be US workers. The California based social network company is heavily dependent on foreign H-1B visa employees and has often said they can not find qualified American workers.
