Facebook plans to stop anti-vaccine content on its platform

Tech News

Facebook says it won’t allow anti-vaccinations posts to spread on its platform.

The company won’t go as far as to disable personal accounts — but says it will begin reducing the distribution of misinformation on vaccines. 

Some accounts will be disabled if they’re found to be continuously violating the policy by sharing inaccurate information that could jeopardize public health.

The new changes will also apply to Instagram.
