Facebook is hiring 3,000 more people to watch its most disturbing videos

facebook jobs

Facebook is the largest social network on the planet and the sheer volume of posts, photos, and videos means that, inevitably, some really horrible stuff is going to make it past the company's watchful eye. That being said, the number of really, really gruesome videos that have popped up on the site recently — and that have remained viewable for hours and in some cases days — is clearly unacceptable to both the general public and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. In a lengthy blog post today, Zuckerberg expressed his displeasure with the trend and announced that he's going to pay 3,000 more people to constantly sift through both live and recorded videos in search of the worst of the worst.

This drone timelapse video is a great way to spend the next 47 seconds

drone time lapse

Shooting video from a drone can offer a unique look at the world, and that has helped drone videos become one of the most popular trends on the internet. But if there's one thing people like more than drone videos, it's time lapse videos. The 47-second clip you're about to see doesn't even make you choose, because it's both at the same time, and it's simply gorgeous.

Crazy torture test video shows how durable the Galaxy S8 really is

galaxy s8 test

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a pretty great looking smartphone, and with its curved glass and edge-to-edge display it might be hard for a new S8 owner to cover up its gorgeous body with a pesky plastic case. A new durability test, courtesy of the always popular YouTuber TechRax, suggests that even if you can't bring yourself to encase your new S8 or S8+, it can stand up to some pretty serious abuse just fine all on its own.

You should spend 8 minutes of your life watching the PlayStation 2 startup animation one trillion times

playstation 2

I'm not normally the kind of person to tell other people how to spend their time — mainly because I don't like people telling me that spending a Saturday night yelling a various digitally rendered characters on a computer screen is a waste — but if you could lend me a little over eight minutes of your time today I think you'll walk away happy. That is, assuming you loved the PlayStation 2 as much as most gamers did.

The Gladius underwater drone will shoot in 4K as it reaches the briny deep

 First drones took to the air. Now they take to the sea! The Gladius is basically a remote-controlled submarine with a 4K camera that can dive to 100 meters. A big, yellow double-barreled monster, the beast is controlled via a phone-connected remote and it is semi-tethered, which means it can roll out about 500 meters with the right gear. Read More

Add a ridiculously high-tech infrared camera to the mix and you've got yourself a recipe for some real eye candy.

Street racing idiot gets exactly what all street racing idiots deserve

street racing crash

If you try to turn your local roadways into a makeshift raceway you're obviously a huge moron, but beyond that you're also endangering the lives of others. If you want to drive your car off the side of a cliff that's totally your business, but don't try to bring anyone else down with you. A group of idiots in Columbia recently learned just how dumb street racing is when one of their crew drove his Mercedes straight into a concrete wall, fulfilling his destiny but escaping with his life.
