A dozen current and former Facebook moderators described a filth-ridden, emotionally disturbing, high-stress work environment where they received little support from managers and an extreme amount of pressure to accurately moderate the never-ending firehose of despicable hate speech, graphic violence against humans and animals, and child pornography on the social network — often leaving them with post-traumatic stress disorder and related conditions.
