“They’re killing people,” US President on Facebook. The social network has already responded

Joe Biden recently sharply criticized Facebook and other major social media platforms for spreading misinformation related to COVID-19 and vaccinations. He stated: “They are killing people. I’m serious. The only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated. “

A Facebook spokesman replied, “We will not be distracted by accusations that are not supported by facts.” Now, Facebook has published a long blog post describing the company’s active role in combating disinformation and its overall engagement in the fight against COVID-19.

Let’s list the main points:

  • Since the start of the pandemic, over 2 billion people have viewed authoritative information about COVID-19 and vaccines on Facebook. This includes over 3.3 million Americans who use Facebook to search for vaccines, find out where to get the COVID-19 vaccine and make appointments.
  • More than 50% of people in the US on Facebook have already seen someone vaccinated against COVID-19. When people see that their friends are vaccinated, it reinforces their belief that vaccines are safe. A message from a friend who has been vaccinated is undoubtedly more effective than a message from a large corporation or the federal government
  • Since the start of the pandemic, we have removed over 18 million copies of COVID-19 disinformation
  • We’ve also tagged and reduced the visibility of over 167 million pieces of COVID-19 content denied by our network of fact-checking partners.

The company claims that about 85% of Facebook users in the US have been or are seeking vaccinations, a number that has skyrocketed since the end of last year.

WhatsApp users will be banned from taking screenshots of files

WhatsApp developers are working on a new feature that will prevent users from taking screenshots and capturing video from the screen when opening files for a one-time view. The innovation has already been implemented in the beta version of the messenger for Android.

WhatsApp users will be banned from taking screenshots of files for one-time viewing

So, in the future mobile version of WhatsApp, users will be notified before sending a file with a single view that the recipient will be able to open the photo or video only once and will not be able to resend it to anyone, save it, copy it or take a screenshot. There are no such notifications or warnings in the current version of WhatsApp. True, at the same time, nothing prevents the recipient from recording a video or photographing content on another smartphone.

Recall that recently the release of a full-fledged WhatsApp client for desktop PCs and laptops running Windows took place.

Naturally, this does not mean at all that all these models will immediately stop receiving software updates – fresh firmware for them will continue to be released for a long time, as beta versions are transferred to the release (final) status. However, we can already say that these models will not receive anything fresher than MIUI 13 (MIUI 14 will not be released until November).

Xiaomi also announced the recruitment of participants in the Android 13 beta testing group for the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition gaming smartphone – the test will be launched before the end of this month.
