Misinformation is not just in English

According to an article which is backdated close to mid-june, although not quite mid-june, I read about misinformation problems on Facebook especially in Spanish.

While I don’t speak Spanish well enough to do anything in the language, I can understand how difficult it is to make sure it is factual, especially since some words we say in English may not have meaning in Spanish.

There is an example of this in one of the tracks we played on the Independent artist show this past Sunday where the Spanish version is not what the English title is.

Facebook declined to mention how many moderators they have doing the Spanish work, yet it mentions other languages in this article.

The article is titled Spanish-language misinformation about vaccines is evading Facebook’s moderators and I’d be interested to hear if you’ve come across this type of thing.

I guess the biggest question is whether you use social media to make decisions? I don’t. Let me know.
