Imagine putting up with your commute, heading into work, and sitting in a cubicle watching murders, child abuse, drug use, and suicides all day, then returning home.

Earlier today, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on his Facebook page that the company will employ an additional 3,000 people (on top of the 4,500 it already has) to monitor videos posted to the social network that are reported for inappropriate content. Zuckerberg said recent videos—presumably including the horrific video of a man killing himself and his 11-month-old daughter in Thailand—were “heartbreaking,” and that the company is working on a system to make it easier to report videos and get inappropriate ones taken down quicker. “
