The state of Connecticut is calling on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to take stronger measures against people posting misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine.
Attorney General William Tong posted a message urging social media platforms to crack down on the spreading of misinformation online when comments came pouring in about censorship and freedom of speech on Facebook.
He's putting pressure on social media platforms to consistently apply misinformation labels and pop-ups on Facebook pages and groups that discuss misinformation on the vaccine and COVID-19.
Pro-choice and ex-vaxxers say they want to make sure they are providing all information to people online about the vaccine, and say that flagging their content is a form of censorship.
