Want a job as a content moderator?

Here’s a job area that seems to be growing: content moderation.

Facebook (and I guess Twitter) hires content moderators to review user complaints or flags, or also content flagged by algorithms. 

I’ve wondered if people could get these jobs to do from home, or local office parks.  You would think this sort of job could be geographically decentralized.

No question, I could do that kind of job, given my background.  But would I have the time for it?
