Pinterest is expanding its efforts to combat COVID-19 misinformation in Pins, and partnering with various health bodies to help ensure that Pinners are able to access accurate, reliable information about the vaccine rollout.
As explained by Pinterest:
“We have been at the forefront of combating health misinformation and ensuring Pinners have access to reliable third-party sources for several years. In fact, we were one of the first platforms to implement a policy prohibiting health misinformation, including vaccine falsehoods, in 2017. As a visual platform reaching more than 450 million monthly active Pinners worldwide, tackling health misinformation continues to be a priority.”
