Facebook employees angry over outsourced moderators

In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, Facebook Inc. rushed to expand efforts to police its platforms, trying to keep political misinformation, graphic violence, terrorist propaganda, and revenge porn off the products.

This has entailed both new technology, and thousands of new workers. Facebook now has about 15,000 content reviewers, almost all of whom work not for Facebook itself but for staffing firms like Accenture and Cognizant.

oh boohoo - all this proves is that you need human eyes on content not damn computers who can't make properly informed decisions about content.
