The Social Network apparently engages in its own brand of BlackOps, employing third worlders to maintain order (which, from what I've seen over the last 12 months, they don't do a very good job at: the so-called GUIDELINES are here)... er... no... they have just been updated so that you can now splatter your Facebook wall with pictures of bodily fluids.
Amine Derkaoui, the 21-year-old Moroccan who leaked the document, claimed he was hired by a firm Facebook uses to outsource content policing, only to be paid $1 an hour for his efforts.
"It's humiliating. They are just exploiting the third world," Derkaoui (who now works as a regional content manager for the New York-based tech company Zenoradio) complained in a thick French accent over Skype just a few weeks after Facebook filed their record $100 billion IPO. As a sort of payback, Derkaoui gave GAWKER some internal documents, which shed light on exactly how Facebook censors the dark content it doesn't want you to see, and the people whose job it is to make sure you don't.
