I social controlleranno la veridicità delle informazioni relative ai cambiamenti climatici che circolano nelle loro piattaforme

Last spring, as false claims about vaccine safety threatened to undermine the world's response to COVID-19, researchers at Facebook wrote that they could reduce vaccine misinformation by tweaking how vaccine posts show up on users' newsfeeds, or by turning off comments entirely. Yet despite internal documents showing these changes worked, Facebook was slow to take action. (AP Photo/Martin Meissner, File)

Twitter, Facebook e Youtube prendono l’iniziativa: annunciano che gli algoritmi che controllano le loro piattaforme di messaggistica filtreranno (pre-debunking) le conversazioni sui cambiamenti climatici, in modo da far circolare solo informazioni verificate, razionali, affidabili e scientificamente fondate.

Questo significa che avranno maggiore visibilità le notizie che provengono da esperti internazionalmente riconosciuti.

Cambiamento epocale o precedente pericoloso? Sicuramente sta finendo l’epoca in cui l’opinione di un qualsiasi sconosciuto valeva quanto quella di un esperto.
