Facebook and YouTube ban anti-vax ads

 💉 As the world strives to find a vaccination for Covid-19 social media platforms are becoming under increasing pressure to repair the public belief in science which has been eroded by misinformation on their platforms. YouTube have stated they are removing content that disputes the existence of anti-vaccination (including coronavirus content), as well as videos that detail unsubstantiated methods of treatment, and will also not allow this content to be promoted. Facebook have similarly banned content of this to be promoted through ads, however it should be noted that organic content of this nature can still be shared. The social media giants are becoming increasingly under fire for their unregulated influence on public perception, this could affect ad regulations and platform policies in the near future.
