Zuckerberg indicates vaccine profile frames may be artificially boosted in the algorithm to influence more people to get the vaccine
Gab CEO Andrew Torba blasted Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s decision to partner with the CDC and HHS to introduce Covid vaccine profile photo frames that will apparently be boosted in the newsfeed algorithm once applied as “totally insane” this week.
Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg said the measure is being introduced because “People are more likely to get vaccinated if they see friends, family and people they trust doing it too.”
“If we’re going to stop Covid, we need everyone who’s eligible to get vaccinated,” Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post. “People are more likely to get vaccinated if they see friends, family and people they trust doing it too. So we’re launching new Covid vaccine profile frame that you can add to your profile pic, partnering with the CDC and US Department of Health and Human Services to launch new Covid vaccine profile frames.”
