Coronavirus outbreak: How Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and TikTok …

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and tiktok all fighting the wrong information related to the new coronavirus.

Uncover and explain how our digital world changed – and changed us.

Social media company raise awareness about deleting conspiracy coronavirus. Facebook, in particular, continue to update the policy as an epidemic – and in accordance disinformation – spread.

On Tuesday, Mark Zuckerberg insists that the platform delete conspiracy theories relating to the coronavirus that has been marked by global health organizations, in addition to the label coronavirus misinformation by the “fact check” label to let the user know that the content is has rated false. Zuckerberg also said that Facebook provide the World Health Organization (WHO) “free advertising as much as they need.” At the same time, Zuckerberg said the company will block ads that try to exploit the situation, as it claims the product has a miracle cure for the disease Covid-19.

It’s been more than two months due to a new strain of coronavirus appeared in Wuhan, China, and continued to spread throughout the world. And as this happens, panic continues to spread throughout social media, forcing the technology platform to grapple with what the World Health Organization called for an “”

On March 4, coronavirus related news to Wuhan, China, has infected nearly 95,000 people, mostly in mainland China, and there are cases popping up all over the United States. More than 3,200 people were killed, although researchers at Johns Hopkins tracking this disease also reported more than 51,000 recovery from illness.

With more and more people are searching online for information about coronavirus outbreak, they can easily find a barrage of misleading and potentially harmful information. And WHO, which also has released his own, warned about the misinformation that the new coronavirus has caused. In the US, for example, there are more and more reports about.

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and tiktok have all told Recode that they have been working to promote the factual content and some limit the scope of the post with the wrong information on their platform. Twitter, for example, has put a warning label to connect to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) when users search for “coronavirus.” Meanwhile, the WHO has ticktock in an effort to improve the accurate information about the disease, and some companies with public health organizations behind Facebook in February.

and recommend some basic steps to help prevent the spread of Covid-19:

Guidance can be changed. Stay informed and stay safe with this Vox.

However, these efforts have not been successful social media platforms halt the spread of misleading or false hoaxes directly on the plague in the form of written and video has racked up thousands of clicks, “Likes”, and shares. A significant amount of false information about coronavirus was also spread on a private channel. Download WhatsApp, for example. As the Washington Post, encrypted platform has seen a flurry of misinformation about coronavirus, creating panic among users worldwide.

Another problem involves politicians promote the idea that the coronavirus is a hoax or conspiracy theories spread other viruses. A Facebook spokesman confirmed that the company will remove Recode false claims and conspiracy theories characterized by the world health organization that has been shared by politicians or elected officials.

While we saw a variety of fake coronavirus article on this platform, it is still difficult to say how widespread the problem is misinformation. But it is significant that the well-regarded institutions, including Johns Hopkins University, a research center in the UK, and has a problem report or comment unload claims that have been floated online. advocacy groups as also has been busy tracking down false and misleading posts.

Although there is a seemingly endless stream of resources spread misinformation about coronavirus Wuhan on the web, we have identified and debunked some of the most pervasive hoax.

On social media, some pushed the idea that a new coronavirus caused by or be associated with the deployment of 5G technologies in Wuhan, China. There are some”Strain” of this theory floating around online. One premise is that 5G technology can weaken the immune system and makes regular flu more deadly. Another promoted the idea that 5G technology itself that causes the symptoms that have been associated with the new coronavirus. One version of the theory pushed the idea that technology to absorb oxygen in the lungs, which is “causing coronavirus.”

The idea of ​​it has been by a third party fact-checker based in the UK, called Full Fact, that works with Facebook. There is no evidence that the 5G impact the immune system, and there is no evidence that it has a link to the new coronavirus.

On social media, some have floated the claim that China is requesting permission from the state Supreme Court to kill people infected with the new coronavirus. Some fact-checkers, including Snopes, own and come from sites with some “red flags.”

Poynter that some social media accounts continue to push the idea that China is planning to kill people with the disease. Meanwhile, some accounts have been floated that idea that the human body that causes the burning of excess sulfur dioxide, which they suggest can be seen from satellite images. There is no evidence that all this is true, and a study from NASA meteorologist said that the images of these theories are based on satellite data is not live.

“Although satellite data have been used in the construction of the emission inventory, these emissions do not account for daily variations in SO2 emissions and as such can not account for sudden changes in human activities,” Arlindo M. da Silva told the organization fact-checking.

One prominent theory is that the coronavirus spread through human consumption bat. BuzzFeed reports that the video that stands out about the novel coronavirus in Hindi which attracted more than 13 million strengthened the claim that the outbreak. This theory, which has appeared throughout social media, also related to the baseless speculation that the coronavirus.

Those claims have helped against people of Chinese descent, and Asians are more extensive, worldwide.

It is true that there has been research into the potential link between bats and coronavirus, but it is important to be very careful in interpreting the findings. First, there is no evidence that eating bats causing coronavirus outbreak. And Jonathan Epstein, a veterinarian and epidemiologist Ecohealth Alliance, said Vox earlier this month that it was “still unknown” whether this outbreak began with the bat in the veterinary market.

“It’s clear there are some environmental pollution in the market that covers this virus. And that’s what we know so far. So it’s likely that infected people in those markets, “Epstein. “But I think there are still some questions about how the earlier cases may have been exposed.”

And this: “Analysis of the genetic tree showed that this virus comes bat, but if the virus jumped right off the bat or if there is no intermediary animal host, however, is known.”

in October 2019 Johns Hopkins a research center run that aims to model the global response to the epidemic potential. Many people online have been misinterpreted and wrongly associated research prediction of the likelihood of deaths from plague similar to what we are witnessing with the new coronavirus. In other words, the Johns Hopkins study has nothing to do with the coronavirus, although learning scenario may seem similar.

This is a popular line of misinformation on Twitter. There are several tweets, including one that is still more than 140,000 “likes,” claiming that scientists have estimated that the coronavirus Wuhan will kill 65 million people. That is not accurate.

“We modeled a fictional coronavirus pandemic, but we explicitly stated that it was not a prediction,” Johns Hopkins Center for Health Insurance said in a. “We do not now predict that nCoV 2019 pandemic will kill 65 million people.”

Now, it is not clear where this new strain of coronavirus originated. The official may be related to the seafood market in Wuhan, but scientists are still not sure how or where it was developed.

On social media, however, there are many unproven theories really more about its origins that suggests the virus outbreak may be associated with, a research institute homeWuhan National Biosafety Laboratory. This Facebook posts that have been shared more than 4,000 times to say that it “believes that Wuhan Institute of Virology is where the disease may have originated.”

This idea seems to be based, in part, on comments of a former Israeli military officer with the Washington Times, a right-wing outlet and past articles. Back in January of Jim Banks, Republican congressman from Indiana, even to a Washington Times article. his tweet has been shared more than 1,000 times. (Rep. Bank did not respond to requests for comment.) And this month, Sen. Tom Cotton as well.

As shocking as laboratory biowarfare theory may be, that there is no evidence to support them. And its own laboratory said in a statement had “caused severe damage to our researchers who have been dedicated to working on the front lines, and cause serious disruption to the emergency research we did during the epidemic.”

Social media posts to encourage the premise proved that the new coronavirus found in Wuhan smuggled from laboratories in Canada as part of China’s clandestine efforts bioweapon theory. It is a theory that seems to be somewhat related to Wuhan lab conspiracy. Tweet by, which has more than 100,000 followers, saying: “#coronavirus stolen from Canada with espionage and sent to Wuhan to weaponized to kill foreign enemies.”

stolen from Canada with espionage and sent to Wuhan to weaponized to kill foreign enemies. Now the deadly weaponized virus killed 80 Chinese & no strangers and become Emperor of this slum Chernobyl!

Although the Chinese researchers working in Canada are being investigated for violations of the policy may be after he was invited to the laboratory Wuhan twice a year for two years, according to PolitiFact, “no evidence” to support the claim that he “stole coronavirus samples and give them to the lab Wuhan to create biological weapons. ”

Another popular theory is that a vaccine for the new coronavirus had been there, and some even suggest that the vaccine previously patented. While researchers in several countries are working to develop a vaccine, no vaccine has not been developed, according to and. But this does not stop people from going online and claim otherwise.

A recent post on Facebook claims that the coronavirus was “set up” for vaccine sell and including screenshots claimed to demonstrate a new patent for a vaccine. In this case, because of the fact-checker Facebook posts verified as containing false information, some of the “related articles” appears below the post, pointing users to the site is verified that the vaccine debunk conspiracy theories. If you try to share a post, Facebook issued a warning stating that the independent fact-checkers say it contains false information.

But even though Facebook has put a warning on some hoaxes associated with Wuhan coronavirus vaccine, which is not marked as false content on any platform. On Twitter, for example, a tweet acquired close to 2,000 “likes” indicates that the vaccine for the coronavirus which is owned by the Pirbright Institute, a British research institute of infectious diseases that focus on livestock.

This claim is. The Pirbright Institute FactCheck.org issued a statement, explaining that, and that the patents they hold is not related to the coronavirus is currently associated with Wuhan.

Some are also trying to profit from spreading false information that there were drugs (), and the Federal Trade Commission warns the public earlier this month that “disease and” setting up websites to sell fake products, and using a fake email, text and social media posts as a ruse to take your money and get your personal information.

March 4, there were nearly 95,000 cases of coronavirus, but at the very end of January, when the number is less than 10,000, the people are very inflate the number of people infected outside any official sources have reported.

This is an important reminder that, when trying to figure out the scale of the spread of the virus, it is worth looking into a leading, official sources such as the World Health Organization. Science and Engineer Systems Center at Johns Hopkins also maintained a useful map document number.

It is true that on January 26, one of public health experts, however, “Almost certainly many tens of thousands of people are infected.” He added, “I’m the bestAlleged now perhaps 100,000 cases now. ” But it’s a big scary number can be misleading because it is a guess and that number has not been confirmed.

However, many popular posts on social platforms statistical spread that served to scare people with numbers that do not correspond to official figures. Some of this post quoted the medics in Wuhan, without evidence. For example, a YouTube video posted on January 25 shows a person who is identified as a nurse, who said there are about 90,000 people infected with the disease in China alone.

Similarly, at the end of January at the Twitter account to share the news outlets disguised as an audio clip that states that the time ,.

It is to be noted that there are legitimate doubts about whether the Chinese government to accurately report the extent of the impact of the virus. At least eight people have been arrested by the Chinese government to spread the hoax, in January. In China the popular WeChat application of social media, some say that the report by the front-line medical workers.

However, the exact number of people infected by the coronavirus is still unknown.

On the ticktock, some teenagers have the virus. One student in Vancouver popular video posted falsely claimed his friend had first confirmed case of Canada coronavirus. The video shows a teenager throwing up in the trash cans of the school and wear masks around campus. In an interview with the Daily Beast, a spokesman for the British Columbia Ministry of Health that the video was a fake. At that time, the only confirmed cases of coronavirus in British Columbia, at the time the video was posted, is a man in his 40s.

ticktock seems to have removed the original viral video that has over 4.1 million views, but the same video, posted by the same user, shows a teenager who accused classmates had contracted the virus remains as of February 20. that morning, the company said the release of a feature that directs users to a reliable source of information, such as the WHO, when they search for content related coronavirus-in applications.

It is to be noted that the Chinese state media also has spread false information. As BuzzFeed first news show, two media outlets country – Global Times and People’s Daily – the outstanding image newly constructed building and claimed it was a hospital in Wuhan which was built in just 16 hours. In fact, the building in the picture.

This is just one example of how the Chinese government and state-supported organizations have used false or misleading information to describe the outbreak as.

Every social media company Recode reached said they are working to reduce the impact of false information about coronavirus in some way, to varying extents.

In addition to recording the WHO conspiracy theories and provided free advertising, Facebook said it is also working on “deter people from running ads that try to exploit the situation.” Zuckerberg said that, as an example, which will include a company to promote products that claim to cure diseases. He also said: “Researchers are already using aggregated and anonymized Facebook data – including data mobility and population density maps -. To better understand how this virus spreads

In, Twitter seems to echo some of the latest steps taken by Facebook. The company said it would “stop any attempts by advertisers to opportunistically use Covid plague-19 to target ads that are inappropriate,” that it is working with a fact checker to promote accurate content on the site, and that it also supplies the data to researchers.

Twitter also said it did not “see a coordinated effort manipulation significant platform around this problem.” This does not mean that there are no false information about coronavirus in Twitter, as previously mentioned hoax proved. Twitter response only indicates that the company has not found evidence of deliberate disinformation campaign by someone, such as a state actor or a political group.

In the early days of the outbreak, Facebook approach is to put a warning the fact-checking bogus content related to the conspiracy theory. But at the end of January, the company will take additional action:

We will also begin to remove content with false claims or conspiracy theories that have been marked by a leading global health organizations and local health authorities which could cause harm to those people who believe them. Wedoing this as an extension of our existing policy to remove content that can cause physical damage. We are focusing on claims that are designed to prevent medication or take the proper precautions. It includes claims related to counterfeit drugs or prevention methods – such as drinking bleach cure coronavirus – or claims create confusion about the health resources available. We also will block or restrict hashtags used to spread of misinformation on Instagram, and are conducting a proactive sweep to locate and remove as much of this content as we can.

Twitter also put a warning label that connects to the CDC when users search for “coronavirus.”

Meanwhile, from the end of January, ticktock began issuing a notice to users when they search for “coronavirus” hashtag in the app. warning prompts the user to look to “reliable sources” such as the WHO for accurate information and content of the report that may violate the community guidelines. Ticktock said Recode in a statement that the guidelines “do not allow misinformation that can cause harm to our society or the larger community,” adding that “[w] hile we encourage our users to have a conversation cordially on subjects that matter to them , we remove a deliberate attempt to portray an authoritative source of news. ”

YouTube has its own version of the advisor. Starting in late January, a video platform is starting to show a brief preview of the news article text based on a coronavirus in the search results. If you are looking for a “coronavirus” on YouTube, for example, you are connected. YouTube said Recode that false information is generally not breaking any rules except platforms involving hate speech, harassment, fraud, or inciting violence. The company also said it aims to reduce the recommendation of what is considered “content limit” or videos that could misinform the user in a dangerous manner – including false information about coronavirus.

Despite these efforts, it seems impossible for this platform to record any false coronavirus post as soon as one of the come up. As with the type of information that is wrong, it is a never-ending game of whack-a-mole. But the continued prevalence of false information about the outbreak, a month into its existence, demonstrated how important it is to prevent the spread of misinformation, especially with serious health consequences involved
