Facebook Inc., under pressure to reduce harmful, misleading and fake content, said it is exploring removing anti-vaccine information from software systems that recommend other things to read on its social network.
Information discouraging people from getting vaccines for their children, which has gone viral on Facebook, especially in its Groups product, may have contributed to an increase in outbreaks of measles. The crisis drew attention on Thursday from Representative Adam Schiff, who sent a letter to Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg and Google boss Sundar Pichai, asking them to address the problem.
In response, Facebook said it is “exploring additional measures to best combat the problem,” according to a statement from the company.
Now who determines what “the problem” is? “The problem” is anything outside of the sphere of official propaganda that may influence individuals to not follow the prescribed protocols.6:50 am on February 16, 2019 Email Karen De Coster
