According to analysis from the Center for Countering Digital Hate, Facebook failed to label half of the posts that promote climate change deniers “policies.
Facebook, now known as Meta Platforms, has long been under surveillance because of the spread of misinformation through the corporation’s platforms.
The company said last year it will include information labels on a few articles on climate change with which it can direct users to its new center of climate science.
The UK-based Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) identified a list of ten digital publishers whose articles constitute about 69% of Facebook’s interactions with articles known as “Toxic Ten.” in an independent report released last November.
This week, CCDH announced that in an analysis of 184 articles published by climate denying publishers, 50.5 percent of the article lacked labels.
