Exposed: The Facebook Algorithm Silencing Vaccine Hesitancy

Exposed: The Facebook Algorithm Silencing Vaccine Hesitancy

Internal documents leaked to Project Veritas by two Facebook employees expose an algorithm that identifies and demotes comments promoting vaccine hesitancy. 

The Facebook algorithm uses classifiers and keywords to assign a vaccine hesitancy or “VH” score to a given comment, explains Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe. Facebook will target and demote any comment they consider “alarmist” and/or “critical” about COVID and the vaccine – even if it is true – or any comment that indirectly discourages vaccination.

As the leaked documents state, the program’s goal is to “drastically reduce user exposure to vaccine hesitancy (VH) in comments.” 

What this means is that they are removing information before you can even see it and decide for yourself.

“It’s kind of like having a relationship with somebody that’s controlling and abusive, in a sense, like an abusive partner not allowing their spouse to speak out about the things that are going on in their marriage or their relationship and limiting their voice,” said one whistleblower to O’Keefe.

The underlying narrative here is that you should get the vaccine because it is good for you. And if you refuse, they will single you out as a pariah and an enemy of society, he added.

The vaccine hesitancy algorithm is currently being tested on 1.5% of Facebook and Instagram’s nearly 3.8 billion users. But there’s no telling how far it will go.  

“The policy is going to keep expanding until anything can violate it…What would happen if this was scaled larger and scaled to Twitter and the Internet as a whole is way worse than anything that could happen from me getting fired from my job,” said the whistleblower. “They want to build a community where everyone complies, not where people can have open discourse and dialogue about the most personal and private and intimate decisions that anyone could ever face in their life.”

At least 25% of the staff at Facebook view the Vaccine Hesitancy algorithm as morally wrong, he added.

When asked why he decided to speak up about the algorithm, the whistleblower explained that he did so in the interest of his children’s future. “When it comes time to standing up for a world I want my children to live in, I don’t want to leave them a world to where they don’t have these liberties, these personal securities, to where they can willingly make their own medical decisions between them, their doctors, and those that are closest to them. That’s not something I can live in. That’s not something I can do.” 

In a response to the Project Veritas report, Facebook claimed to have announced its Vaccine Hesitancy algorithm on its company blog. It also claims to have updated its help center with this information. This does not appear to be true.

    Alice,
    Your buddy Matt Geatz has a solution for that!

    Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida on Thursday escalated his rhetoric against Silicon Valley companies he argues are censoring conservatives, suggesting Americans have an “obligation to use” their Second Amendment right to bear arms against them.

      You need to get a job and be silent as you never have anything positive to contribute. You stir strife. Never heard any positive input from you as to help anyone or anything.

        Dale.
        I have a job, a good one, one that I truly enjoy! It pays well and has great benefits, including being able to positively impact my fellow citizens, and a healthy pension at the end.

        I am very positive! I positively support those in need of support. I work in real life and on this site to shine light on those that may be in need. In this case I am bringing attention to an ( alleged ) pedophile and his quote of advocating for the use of the second amendment to get his way against private company.

        I have also agreed with Larry and advocated for slave holding democrats to be publicly shamed, their statues torn down and replaced with liberating republicans.

        I agree with Larry that trump lost and will be the downfall of the Republican Party. Although we don’t agree that the party of trump is a cult or not.

        The list is endless, just because you don’t agree with me, doesn’t mean I’m negative. You and I probably agree on a lot of things. But you are too hung up on me being the “other”. “Lesser “, than you.

        As far as being silent, Larry bought my email address and invited me to participate on this forum. He is a HUGE advocate for freedom of speech. I couldn’t agree more! So, to honor Larry, I am exercising the heck out of my free speech rights! I do wish he would engage his readers more often… like he used to, prior to my Reddit friends joining the site.
        Maybe one day

    Holy cow.
    Y’all see what Stenson hat is doing?

    Stetson hats ceases business with Nashville HatWRKS

    What happens when a conservative icon brand tries to cancel a small business for their controversial views?
    Almost like when Wrangler almost got cancelled for signing Lil NasX.

    Daaaang! Twitter has banned trump advisor Mike Flynn for calling for a military coup! Social media just won’t stop silencing conservative voices!

    Alice, I just saw a theory on Q thread.

    What if this was only a dry run, a viral illness that 99% of the people recover from. It would cull off the weakest among us and expose those that aren’t compliant sheep. The compliant get the vaccine, the strong patriots resist.

    This leading to a super strain next year or so, that will kill off everyone that doesn’t have the vaccine, therefore eliminating the strongest patriots so the elite can carry out their agenda with no resistance.

    When you think about it, it makes perfect sense.
