FACEBOOK: DO NOT LIKE “FAKE” NEWS OR ELSE

FACEBOOK: DO NOT LIKE “FAKE” NEWS OR ELSE

Facebook will start warning users directly if they engage with harmful misinformation about the coronavirus, such as theories that drinking bleach will help patients or that social distancing is ineffective at stopping the disease’s spread.

Mark Zuckerberg announced the new feature in a new Facebook post this morning, saying that the red flag notices will appear in users’ News Feeds and direct them to information provided by the World Health Organization. The feature is expected to begin in the next few weeks.

Like every other social media company, Facebook is trying to stem the massive amount of wrong information being spread about the disease across its platform, which totals some 2.4 billion monthly users.

Zuckerberg also drew attention to Facebook’s expanded fact-checking efforts—that also extend to Instagram—that put warnings on 40 million posts last month. This seems to be an effective tool: According to Facebook, users didn’t go onto the original content after seeing these warnings 95% of the time.

“On Facebook and Instagram, we’ve now directed more than 2 billion people to authoritative health resources via our Covid-19 Information Center and educational pop-ups, with more than 350 million people clicking through to learn more,” Zuckerberg writes.

DAWG SAYS: I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER NOW THAT I KNOW FOR SURE HAS OUR BEST INTEREST IN MIND.

ESPECIALLY SINCE “Z” MAN HAS BUDDIESD UP WITH BILL GATES ON VACCINES.

SO, I WONDER WHO DECIDES WHAT IS FAKE NEWS?

WHEN ARE PEOPLE GOING TO STOP USE THIS DICTATING SOCIAL PLATFORM?

FACECROOKS IS NOT A SIGHT FOR FREE EXPRESSION, IT IS A PRIVATE COMPANY AND THEY CAN DO AS THEY WISH.

THEY DO NOT SUSTAIN ANY KIND OF LIFE AND ARE NOT A REQUIREMENT FOR YOU TO LIVE.

DO YOU FEEL BETTER NOW? I DON’T!

  1. Commissar Z is and was the main reason I decided my life did not and does not need the duplicitous social networks. Money making machines on the backs of the under educated in our society.

      A perfect time for someone to start another social media, void of advertising and investors.
