White House wants social media misinformation about COVID-19 vaccination to tackle more aggressively and effectively. Before Biden, Surgeon General Vivek Murthy said to social media platforms to take strict action against accounts misleading others about the corona vaccine. He further said that Facebook should take an intelligent algorithmic approach to counter misleading info.

Social media websites are designed to show us emotionally charged content but accuracy is not guaranteed. Their algorithms show us what we want to see and this can leads users into the deep well of misinformation.

– Surgeon General Vivek Murthy

After these comments, the Facebook representative defends Facebook,

We will not be distracted by accusations that are not supported by facts and figures. The truth is more than 2 billion people globally viewed authoritative information about Corona Virus and vaccines on Facebook, which is more than any other social platform. More the 3 million Americans used our vaccine finder tool to find out where and how to get the vaccine.

These facts are enough to show that Facebook is saving lives.

-Facebook Spokesman

Some people are supporting these comments, but according to some Republicans, the government should not in involve in the speech restrictions of the private sector.

US is providing COVID vaccines to its citizens at a rapid rate but people who get vaccinated are decreasing in the past few months. Thus, the number of deaths and cases is increasing. This provoked these comments about Social Media.
