Facebook and Instagram will begin prompting users to visit the websites of the CDC and WHO for credible vaccine information.
A Facebook spokesperson told Infectious Diseases in Children that the company was taking steps to provide users more context about vaccines. Pop-up windows will appear with vaccine-related searches on Facebook, on Facebook groups and pages that discuss vaccines, invitations to join Facebook groups that discuss vaccines and if someone uses a vaccine-related hashtag on Instagram in the search, feed, explore or profile functions. Facebook owns Instagram.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Genentech, Inc.
