Oh man, this is awful. Poor guy. And this should have been there right from the start:
The moderator said that when he started, he was given just two weeks training and was required to use his personal Facebook account to log into the social media giant’s moderation system.

“They should have let us use fake profiles,” he said, adding: “They never warned us that something like this could happen.”

Facebook told the Guardian that as a result of the leak it is testing the use of administrative accounts that are not linked to personal profiles.
