Facebook says it will look into removing posts promoting conspiracy theories about vaccines following complaints from Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

The company told Bloomberg News on Friday that it is “exploring additional measures to best combat the problem” of fake news and conspiracy theories being promoted on its site, which include numerous groups and message boards dedicated to spreading theories concerning a nonexistent link between vaccines and autism.

Possible steps the company could take include “reducing or removing this type of content from recommendations, including Groups You Should Join, and demoting it in search results, while also ensuring that higher quality and more authoritative information is available,” the company told Bloomberg.

    • People are NOT stopping to vaccinate en masse. In fact, more people are vaccinating as they realize the scam that’s been laid on them by antivaxxers and their kid are getting sick.

      • You must’ve read this from Fake News or taken it off the CDC site or heard it from your doctor, but the fact is that loads and loads of people have joined the anti-vaxxers. Why do you think Facebook is removing anti-vaxxers reommendations and there are so many articles on vaccinating and Bill Gate who donated billions to Big Pharma did not vaccinate his children?
