AI and algorithms might not be enough to control Facebook’s inappropriate content issues.

In a post on his public profile page Wednesday morning, May 3, Mark Zuckerberg explained in 317 words how he and his team are aiming to solve the problem of recent excessively violent and inappropriate video content.

“Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen people hurting themselves and others on Facebook — either live or in video posted later… 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. – Mark Zuckerberg

The post also features comments from two of Facebook’s prominent individuals:

“Keeping people safe is our top priority. We won’t stop until we get it right.” – Sheryl Sandberg (Chief Operating Officer)

“Our Community Operations team really does do incredible work at an unbelievable scale. Glad to hear we’re going to invest even more in their growth.” – Mike Rognlien (Learning & Development Leader – Americas).
