In a post on Facebook, Zuckerberg said the move will enable to company to respond faster when someone needs help.

“We have a lot more work to build a global community that works for everyone. I shared earlier today that we’re adding 3,000 people to our community operations team to review reported posts faster when someone needs help. We’re also continuing our work to spot false news, and enabling greater civic engagement by connecting people with their government representatives.

This quarter we also took a major technology step forward at F8 by opening up the camera to be the first mainstream augmented reality platform. I’m excited to get virtual and augmented reality in more of your hands soon.

As always, thank you for being a part of this journey to connect the world.”
