Facebook hiring ‘news credibility’ specialists

San Francisco, June 8: With allegations of Facebook fanning violence through the spread of hate speech and false news on its platform piling up, the social network is reportedly hunting for people for its “News Credibility Programme.” The social media company has been looking for at least two people (one fluent in Spanish), reported on Thursday. The job postings, first reported by Business Insider, are looking for contractors who “should be comfortable performing repetitive tasks, and have the ability to perform well autonomously.” (IANS)
