Aiming to combat the spreading of misinformation, Facebook has decided to put a coronavirus information center at the top of the News Feed in the US and other countries. The aim is to put information from authoritative sources front and center for Facebook users. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company had built the information center in collaboration with its health partners. The goal is to put information from authoritative sources such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) in front of Facebook users.
The information center will roll out in several of the US locations and some in Europe across the next 24 hours, with a more global rollout in the next few days.
