Facebook will create 1,000 new roles in London over the course of this year, including adding to its team tackling harmful online content.
Pressure has been growing on social media firms to remove posts promoting self-harm and political extremism.
More than half of the new jobs will be technology-focused, with roles in software engineering, product design and data science, the company said.
Those roles will be in Facebook’s “community integrity” team, which designs tools to police posts on Facebook’s platforms including Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp.
The firm had detected and removed two million posts from Facebook and 800,000 from Instagram, he added.
