'No more faith in humanity': A day in the life of Berlin Facebook moderators

https://www.thelocal.de/20170711/the-first-beheading-video-made-me-weep-a-day-in-the-life-of-facebook-moderators

Quote:
For the first time, Facebook opened up its Berlin centre for deleting hateful or violent content, providing journalists with a glimpse into the workers' everyday dealings with decapitation videos, racist propaganda and child pornography.


Quote:
Facebook is now facing increased pressure from the German government to crack down on hate speech, after the Bundestag (German parliament) recently passed a law to fine social media companies up to €50 million for not swiftly removing illegal content.


Quote:
Facebook itself condemned the law before its passage for allowing the state to “pass on its own failures and responsibilities to private companies”.


Quote:
Former employees claimed that they felt psychologically strained by the work, and were not cared for by their employer, which is a division of the Bertelsmann media company.
