Facebook to hire content reviewers for their new Nairobi office

Social media networking site Facebook will create job opportunities for 100 Kenyans in their Nairobi office.

The platform which recently celebrated 15 years since its launch is intending to hire 100 content reviewers as they open their first content review center in sub-Saharan Africa in Nairobi.

According to an article by Nairobi News, the 100 reviewers will be expected to support languages in Somali, Oromo, Hausa, and Swahili. This move is part of Facebook’s commitment to ensuring the safety and security of its investment in Africa.

The center will be the first content hub in Africa and is a partnership between Facebook and Samasource.

“This highlights our commitment to serving the community of people using our platforms across Africa, as well as our commitment to continuing to invest and partner locally across the continent,” said Ebele Okobi, Facebook Public Policy Director in Africa.

According to Fazdai Madzingira, Public Policy Associate for content, Facebook has made significant investments globally, and locally in ensuring that people see the content they want to see, and are aware of what is and is not allowed on the platform.

Facebook is an American social networking site that has gained worldwide recognition since it was founded in February 2004. The networking platform was created by Mark Zuckerberg, along with fellow Harvard College students and roommates Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes.
