Pinterest takes an unusual step to curb the anti-vaccine movement

Feb 26, 2019 18:14 IST

In a bid to curb misinformation and inaccuracies promoted by anti-vaccination groups on social media, digital platform Pinterest has taken an unusual step and decided to restrict vaccine search results. Type anything related to vaccines or vaccination into its search bar and nothing will pop up. This is a temporary solution but a more tailored approach is in the pipeline. The anti-vaccine propaganda opposes immunising children against preventable diseases and has been labelled by WHO as one of the worst health threats facing humanity in 2019. Social media platforms seem to have played a major role in promoting the same.
