Have you ever noticed a friend's post on Facebook that made you concerned for their well-being? Now, instead of simply reporting a post to Facebook's busy corporate team, your reported post goes directly to Facebook’s global community operations team, a group of hundreds of people around the world who monitor flagged posts 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Posts that are specifically tagged as potentially self-harmful are to be expedited and reviewed more quickly by the team members. The team members who evaluate potentially suicidal content are given special training. So how exactly does this new feature save lives?
