Facebook has decided to take drastic measures to fight disinformation by simply blocking the sharing of the latest fashionable conspiracy video
Facebook automatically blocks the sharing of the new trendy conspiracy video on coronavirus. Twitter, for its part, has decided not to ban it, but will post a warning if it is shared. A drastic decision to fight misinformation.
Fake news and other conspiracy theories on the coronavirus are legion and can spread extremely quickly on the Internet. Facebook has decided to take drastic measures to fight disinformation by simply blocking the sharing of the latest fashionable conspiracy video: Plandemic Indoctornation. The latter ensures that the virus is part of a global plan to control the population.
Indeed, several people have found it impossible to share this video on the social network. It is automatically blocked. It should be noted that this is not a Youtube video, but is on a player owned by a site called Freedom Platform. This makes it very easy for Facebook to identify it.
Twitter also reacted to the release of this new video. The Bluebird network chose not to block it, but to post a warning that the content was either spam or a dangerous link. Note that the conspiracy site London Real, which was the first to share the video on LinkedIn, has been suspended.
A very popular video
Plandemic Indoctornation is a conspiracy "documentary" that explains that the virus is just a well-oiled plan (hence the Plandemic) to force people to vaccinate themselves in order to control it. It follows a documentary called simply Plandemic released last May and broadcast in the same way. This video quickly gained popularity and was shared on the networks. This is why the networks decided to take drastic measures to avoid a new mass distribution.
Many suspect the QAnon collective of being behind the production of this content, which takes up interviews by truncating them and gives the floor to followers of conspiracy theories. The result is several minutes of counter-truths asserted with aplomb and distilled into an anxiety-provoking montage.
In any case, the networks will do everything they can to prevent the video from going viral.
