EDITORS SAVE LIVES
Health advocates are praising the social network Pinterest for taking an ethical stand on vaccine misinformation — and backing it up with editorial practices. Unlike larger networks, notably Facebook, Pinterest decided not to stay neutral on the issue, The Verge reported. The network observed that anti-vaccine content vastly outnumbers pro-vaccine content because most people who are pro-vaccine just get their shots and go about their day without becoming obsessive content creators. While Facebook focuses on combating political misinformation, Pinterest’s policy could be life-saving, The Verge said.
