Well, there is lot of misleading and fake information going on about the corona virus everywhere and moreover on the social media platform which has a great number of download and hype called Instagram.
Now, probably you may be wondering how Instagram is been in this concept or the verb of misinformation and misleading or making fake news’s on the pandemic virus called corona virus.
Well, it is not Instagram but it is the people making using this platform and this is happening by one of the effect or filter called “The AR effect”.
And Instagram doesn’t want this to happen. So, it decided to remove that particular filter. Many Instagram accounts are making use of these effects to trick users into believing that they can treat or cure the virus.
Moreover, Instagram said that it is removing all these misconceptions and fake news of corona virus so that when someone clicks on hashtags related to COVID-19 and that will redirect him/her to the official accounts and websites of WHO and CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention).
And not this at all but Instagram is taking other important measures and precautions to prevent COVID-19 fake news like sending posts that may be misleading, blocking and restricting hashtags that are used to spread misinformation and well as banning ads that are taking advantages of the pandemic.
We’ve removed previously-published effects and are rejecting all-new effects, which claim to predict, diagnose, treat, or cure coronavirus. we won’t allow people to search for COVID-19 related AR effects on Instagram unless they were developed in partnership with a recognized health organization.
And, that about the AR effect removal from Instagram in order to avoid that fake news and if you like the content then SHARE IT because it is FREE. Thanks for coming, meet you.
