On March 24, Facebook, the “famous” Internet giant in the United States, had such a “statement” on its website. The main idea of the statement is simple: “to ensure that our services are stable and reliable during the outbreak of covid-19.” However, how credible is the statement made by the company’s founders, who can even discredit China and run trains at the hearing? If we take the information processing of public health, even the new epidemic situation as the standard, 16% is a very noteworthy data. < / P > < p > for a product based on the dissemination of information and social networking, if less than 20% of the credibility is left in matters involving some key topics, it is undoubtedly a very tragic thing, and the tragedy of Facebook should start from here On August 19, the BBC reported that a report issued a warning that “Facebook threatens public health.”. In the report, the BBC referred to an organization called Avaaz, which focused on facebook accounts from five countries: the United States, the United Kingdom, France and Italy, and analyzed the contents of these accounts to a certain extent. It believes that despite Facebook’s so-called “fact check” on some fake information, only 16% of the fake information is labeled with a warning label. 16% of the above is from the “research results” of this organization. “Facebook’s algorithms have become a major threat to public health,” said Fadi Quran, head of the awaz group. Zuckerberg has promised to provide reliable information during the outbreak But his algorithm has ruined those efforts, pushing many of the 2.7 billion users into networks that deliver the wrong medical information. ” < / P > < p > however, in the BBC report, we also saw Facebook’s response to the matter: “these findings do not reflect what we (Facebook) have done. “< / P > < p > Facebook argued in a statement that” we share the same goal as the awaz group – to limit misinformation. Thanks to our global fact checking network, from April to June, we tagged 98 million misinformation about covid-19 and deleted 7 million potentially harmful items. ” < / P > < p > the statement also said, “we have guided more than 2 billion people to obtain resources from the health sector, and when someone tries to share a link about covid-19, we will show them a pop-up window to connect them with credible health information.” < / P > < p > the 33 page report made it clear at the beginning that Facebook failed to protect people’s safety and the right to know during the epidemic. “The global health leave information dissemination network covers at least five countries, and last year (2019) generated 3.8 billion reading volume on the Facebook platform”. < / P > < p > the report also revealed that the capacity of these websites for spreading false information peaked in April 2020, with about 460 million visits on Facebook, when the new crown epidemic was intensifying worldwide. < / P > < p > to this end, awaz tracked 82 known websites on the Internet that spread fake information about health and identified the top 10 of them, and the core content of these fake news websites was spread more widely through Facebook pages, groups and profile links. The top 10 websites contributed 40% of the fake news reading volume (the 3.8 billion times mentioned above), i.e. 1.5 billion times. The No.1 real industry website has about 250 million reading volume. According to the report, the 10 fake news websites also far exceeded the websites of the top 10 official health agencies in the world. In April, when the global epidemic situation turned to the top, fake news websites read about four times as much as the websites of official health institutions. < / P > < p > on Facebook, the public home page of realventure website still exists “healthily”, with 1.18 million praises and 1.18 million followers, and its institutional identity is “news and media website”. < / P > < p > Oh? Is it a colleague of the press? I never heard of it. So after looking at the content of this “news website”, we found that it was like this. (below) < / P > < p > “for people under the age of 25, the fatality rate of the new coronavirus is 0.00008%, or 1.25 million.” Is this argument very familiar? It is true that Donald Trump, the current president of the United States, said that “young people are almost immune to the new coronavirus” in order to promote his return to work. The connection is unknown. < / P > < p > the Facebook page on the site also says, “if masks work, why keep a distance of six feet? If 6ft works, why wear a mask? If both of them work, why should the city be closed? ” There is no need to explain this kind of statement? Up to now, this PO article still exists on Facebook and plays its role. 741 comments and 1083 share times seem to tell us what it means. Such misleading anti intelligence information has not been verified by Facebook platform. < / P > < p > Yes, if you input covid-19 or coronavirus to search, you can clearly see the false news of a certain organization’s imperial mouthpiece, and there is a consistent expression of demonizing China. For example, viruses are a cliche made by laboratories in Wuhan. It seems to find the reason why such information is not checked by fact However, Facebook and Zuckerberg are able to say that thanks to their “global fact finding network”, Facebook and Zuckerberg are still able to say that they are motivated to provide reliable information due to their “global fact finding network”. < p > < p > < p > according to the report of the awaz organization, realmilitary website shared a lot of false information and conspiracy theories about the covid-19 epidemic through a private service agency registered in Panama in 2013. The website and its three Facebook pages responsible for dissemination received 500 million reading in one year, making it the largest false news network involving health care so far Stop. As mentioned in the report, Facebook’s algorithm uses a series of variables and calculations to determine what users see in a news feed and where it is placed. For example, the number of feedback and comments received on a post, whether users show interest in group content and page posts, and a range of other signals. The location of the news feed Facebook calls “rank” is determined by the algorithm, which provides a significant amplification effect on the relevant content. < / P > < p > as the examples in the report show, misleading information about health content is often sensational and provocative, so it will get more attention. In turn, this kind of attention will be interpreted by the algorithm as the reason for pushing these contents in the news feed, thus forming a vicious circle in which the algorithm consistently and artificially provides wrong health-related information. < / P > < p > in addition, the report also mentions that Facebook admits that there are still about 125 million active fake accounts on the platform, which are constantly distorting the algorithm to be unable to represent the real needs of users. What’s more worrisome is that the increased attention to the health-related false information generated by the algorithm will further increase the visibility and the number of users of pages or websites sharing error information. < / P > < p > the report at that time told a story about a doctor named Craig Spencer who returned to New York for a vacation after taking part in the treatment of Ebola patients in Guinea, and was infected with the virus long after being isolated. He reported his condition as required, and experts assured him that he would not cause harm to the public. This is just the credit of the traditional American media. Do people think it’s over here? No, in the next 24 hours, Dr. Craig became the scariest person in New York City. < / P > < p > as major news entities scramble to take advantage of the collective panic about Ebola, a frenzied induced click and a terrible narrative style appear. It’s even more serious on social media. With social media hype and information exploding, 6000 tweets are being sent out every second, making CDC and public health officials scrambling to contain misinformation in all directions. People’s fear is accompanied by such a wide spread of information. This emotional reaction, and the media associated with it, has brought billions of readings to the agency that reports on it. However, it is sad that panic does not solve any problems. But billions of dollars directly become advertising revenue for these social media. Before the hysteria is over, millions of dollars of real estate in the media associated with Ebola information are bought or sold through algorithms. < / P > < p > that is to say, people’s fear has become the driving force of fake news transmission, into click and read again and again, and finally become the money in the pocket of social media giants. Coincidentally, just this year, when the United States had 5.5 million new coronal infections and 170000 deaths, the U.S. economy was facing major challenges, and many people were anxious about the epidemic, Zuckerberg’s worth rose. How to reliably capture the human brain’s attention is one of the most important new trends in the 21st century, according to the report. This discovery, like every great invention in our history, has unexpected and unpredictable consequences. If we want to continue to live in a common reality, we must be willing to see these results with a clear mind. As a species, solve our biggest problems, from climate change to epidemics to poverty. This requires us to have a common narrative of the problem we face: the real threat and the real cause of our anger. < / P > < p > at the end: in this information explosion era of new media, social media is responsible for providing fast and reliable information. However, it is obvious that no matter whether the research on Facebook company in the report of awaz organization is worthy of further exploration, the connivance and neglect of false information by Facebook deserves serious examination and attention. Zuckerberg and his Facebook have to make it clear to his 2.7 billion users whether these rumors flying like snowflakes during the epidemic are one of the reasons why the epidemic is out of control in some places? Are some people rejecting the “scientific” basis of science? Is Facebook a platform that deliberately connives at targeted rumors because of certain political interests?
