Research Finds Two Thirds Of Anti Vaxx Propaganda Created By 12 Influencers

Different to those who describe themselves vaccine hesitant, anti-vaxxers tend to employ aggressive methods to persuade others not to get injections designed to help prevent disease.

The list was compiled by the Centre for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) and found most of the figures, who claim to be political or medical leaders, are based in America.

After social media companies were made aware of the prevalence of the material some was removed, but many videos and articles remain online today.

Critics believe some are exploiting loopholes which mean that if they post content under another name or appear on a page hosted by another user their anti-vax content is not removed.

Imran Ahmed, the chief executive of the CCDH, told Sky News that social media giants "bear none of the cost for the content" they host, including dangerous material which can drive users to their platforms.

He called on the companies to do more to remove it quickly, amid fears that those left unvaccinated remained more vulnerable to COVID-19 infection and, crucially, hospitalisation.

He said the most effective anti-vaxxers were "great marketers" and drew people in by generating content related to wellness or fertility, then gradually linked these issues to vaccination.

Mr Ahmed said the algorithms used by social media platforms then fed people more and more similar content, until they see it frequently while online - thus normalising the opinions.

Sorry for going kind of off topic although still related but i gotta comment on this cuz i think its such a prevelant issue

 

I have a serious issue on how in the last several years the internet and its algorithms create bubbles and isolated pockets for different groups of ppl by constantly suggesting and feeding them what they respond to

 

Im convinced this is part of the reason politics and opinions are becoming more polarized than ever before and why fewer and fewer people can look at the big picture if everything and consider all the variables... Or why when they disagree on something they cant still at least understand the other point of view (within reason obviously, some disgusting things like blunt hatred need not be respected or understood). There has always been disagreements and/or ignorance but as agressive a division as now not in a long time

 

Ppl view everything so black and white now and being served only 1 side of the story with ppl that think just like them is part of whats fueling it imo and I mean that for all political sides (even if some are a little worse than others) and if u think only the opposing political side has this issue then theres a good chance ur also infected with this bias as well just sayin :madge:
