Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Wednesday that the company will hire an additional 3,000 people to its community operations team that reviews millions of user reports about bad content, on top of the 4,500 already assigned

In a post to his Facebook page, Zuckerberg says Facebook is working to make bad videos easier to report by building better tools that to help users flag content so that the company can take the right action sooner.

Why it matters: The announcement comes ahead of Facebook's Q1 earnings call to investors, where they are expecting to receive questions about how they will tackle bad content on its platform moving forward. Facebook has faced backlash for multiple recent instances of nefarious content living on its site after it was reported. Most recently, Facebook got national headlines for its inability to remove a killing video from Cleveland for almost two hours after it went live.

Jeff Bezos' flight into space generated more interest from the public than Richard Branson's, and both billionaires overshadowed their respective space companies.

Why it matters: Data shows an outsized public interest in the personalities at the center of the space trips, compared to the companies behind them — which could reinforce public suspicion that the ventures were partly vanity plays.
