Facebook Started to Close the Accounts of Those Who Oppose the Coronavirus Vaccine!
Facebook announced that it was taking action against anti-vaccine and that 65 Facebook accounts and 243 Instagram accounts were closed. According to the statements made, the campaigns in question, with the help of social media phenomena, included claims such as "vaccine turns people into monkeys", which is far from science and has no basis.
While the whole world is trying to fight the coronavirus pandemic, a segment that has spread around the world does its best to undermine this struggle. Yes, we are talking about anti-vaccine, as you might have guessed. Authorities, who have the right to sanction on the subject, take the necessary measures to restrain anti-vaccination opponents.
Now, Facebook has made a statement on the subject. Announcing that the accounts of a group of anti-vaccine people targeting especially India, the USA and Latin America were closed, the platform said that these anti-vaccine people did everything to spread false information. Moreover, Russia-based influencer marketing agency Fazze was a stakeholder in this process. As a result of the investigations, 65 Facebook accounts and 243 Instagram accounts that were involved in the aforementioned misinformation campaign were closed.
Coronavirus Vaccine Will Turn People into Monkeys!
In the statements made by Facebook, it was revealed how unbelievable ways the vaccine people resorted to. So much so that the opponents of the vaccine created montage images on this subject, saying that the coronavirus vaccine developed by AstraZeneca turns people into monkeys.
Not only that, the group has tried to spread countless misinformation on Instagram and Facebook, which has no scientific basis. Facebook management says that there have been two waves of fake news, including social media phenomena, and that both waves have been eliminated.
In the statements made by Facebook, it was stated that the users involved in the smear campaigns were personally warned. In particular, Facebook officials, who directly contacted social media phenomena, said that such superstitions should not be believed and that scientific research should be examined. We hope that such closure attempts are also implemented by other social media platforms, and people who do not have the slightest knowledge of the subject will be prevented from lashing out at science.
