I think Facebook didn't anticipate the impact that the job would have on those who did it.

It's a job that should be done by an AI, really. Train a deep-learning algorithm to recognise moderatable content and allow it to take immediate action to prevent such content from being posted. People can appeal if they feel they've been unfairly moderated, and those appeals can be considered by human moderators. That's how I'd do it.
