Social networks continue to fight against the misinformation of some users. There are many hot topics that need an official clarification, but many are dedicated to lying about what happened. To give a clear example, there are many who have expressed and spoken about the process of the vaccine against COVID-19 and that its effects were more negative than positive. For that reason, YouTube will tighten the rules against these types of videos.
Immediate removal against videos
Information is power, and having accurate information is always necessary. However, there are people who insist on giving data that is not correct or real, even based on unsubstantiated opinions. For this reason, social networks prevent these types of publications from being shared, all they do is cause confusion to users.
This is very clear to them on YouTube, that since almost the beginning of the pandemic has prioritized information from official channels in order to give all the data considered to be true since they come from verified sources. It is a question of reliability and now the social network has further toughened its rules of use.
As it counts SlashGear, Mountain Viewers will now remove all content that yields false testimonies about COVID-19 vaccines. Among them are those that say that inoculating the drug can cause autism, cancer or infertility. And that’s not all, since it will also remove from circulation all those videos that deal with conspiracy theories about how much this practice benefits pharmaceutical companies and governments.
A job that influences the rest
YouTube does not want there to be videos on its platform that misinform the COVID-19 situation and that’s why it takes new measures. But it is not the only thing that he has focused on, and it is that he will also redouble the effort by transporting this measure to the rest of the videos that lie about the rest of the most common vaccines.
“Vaccines in particular have been a source of fierce debate over the years, despite constant guidance from health authorities on their effectiveness,” the company says in a statement in which it commits to the good work of its users and punish those who do not follow you.
