Facebook is planning to hire around 3,000 more people to add to the company's community operations team.
Mark Zuckerberg said that the move was in response to a recent history of â€śheartbreakingâ€ť instances where people have harmed â€śthemselves or othersâ€ť during streamed videos on Facebook Live.
Currently, the team has around 4,500 workers looking into reported videos, but in a recent post on the social network, Zuckerberg said that the extra investment and manpower would be used to â€śmake it simpler to report problemsâ€ť and respond quicker.
This comes at a time when Facebook has announced that it is fast approaching the 2 billion monthly user milestone.
1.94 billion people now use Facebook on a monthly basis, with 1.3 billion using it every day.
