Facebook appreciated Biden's statement that the social network is “killing people”




Facebook reacted to the remark of US President Joe Biden that social networks are “killing people” by spreading misinformation about coronavirus vaccines. This is reported by a correspondent of the NBC News channel with reference to a representative of Facebook.

The employee of the company noted that it is not necessary to attach special importance to accusations that are not supported by facts. He recalled that more than 2 billion users of the social network viewed authoritative information about COVID-19 and vaccines on Facebook, which is more (the number of views-ed.) than on any other platform on the Internet.

“More than 3.3 million Americans have also used our tool to search for information about vaccines to find out where and how to get the drug. The facts indicate that Facebook helps to save lives, “ said a representative of the IT giant.

The quarrel between the White House and Facebook occurred a day after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters during a daily briefing that President Biden's administration “regularly reviews social networks” and “tags” messages containing misinformation on issues related to Covid-19.

This statement caused a wave of negative reactions among conservatives, who have long argued that Facebook often censors them for their political beliefs.

Earlier, US President Joe Biden said that platforms such as Facebook are “killing people” by spreading misinformation about vaccines.
