Facebook Blocks Users From Linking To New Plandemic Hoax Video. Facebook and other Social media sites are blocking their users from spreading the plandemic: Indoctornation, a sequel to the Plandemic conspiracy video about the novel coronavirus. As tweeted by Brandy Zadrozny, a NBC News reporter, Facebook blocks users from reposting a link to the new video, which was uploaded to an external site according to a tweet on Twitter. However, Twitter doesn’t block the video link, but shows users who click it to a warning screen, saying that the link is “potentially spammy or unsafe.”

However, as reported by The Verge, Twitter confirmed that it’s warning people rather than blocking the link; the company will evaluate any short clips that are directly uploaded on a case-by-case basis and will remove any that it indicates dangerous misinformation.

Also, Streaming channel London Real, that posted the video previously, reported that the video was suspended by LinkedIn before its premiere. Also,  CrowdTangle, London Real’s posted original link of the video and got about 53,000 interactions on Facebook. A reposted version of the video can be found on YouTube, but it currently has about 200 views.

THE ORIGINAL VIDEO  VIEWED MILLIONS OF TIMES

The original video of 26 minutes was Initially posted in May. The Plandemic documentary was a hit on social media and promoted a number of false claims about the coronavirus pandemic, including the (completely incorrect) assertion that wearing a mask can “activate” the coronavirus. At first the  Companies did not want to remove the video and this brought about millions of views and formed a high online attention for its star, discredited researcher Judy Mikovits.

According to a QAnon conspiracy theory, as reported by New York Times analysis, it is believed that Plandemic was promoted heavily by adherents of QAnon conspiracy theory. Which claims that the Trump administration is fighting a secret war against celebrity Satanic pedophiles. And as well as the anti-pandemic-mitigation “reopen” movement and individuals like celebrity doctor Christiane Northrup. It’s not clear how much of it was driven by social media recommendation systems, which are frequently blamed for spreading misinformation. However, Facebook initially took the milder step of reducing Plandemic’s reach rather than removing it, giving it a greater chance to spread. That doesn’t appear to be happening with Indoctornation.

It is believed that one of the more hopeful developments at tech platforms this year has been their investment in removing misinformation related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter were all relatively quick to acknowledge the threat that COVID hoaxes represent, and have worked to purge it from their networks. Enforcement of those misinformation policies has sometimes lagged behind the companies’ public statements, though. A piece of anti-vaccination agitprop catchily titled “Plandemic” attracted up to millions of views before it was spotted and taken down by the platforms in May. More worryingly, a new information of a propaganda pushing a phony COVID cure was seen by 20 million people on Facebook alone before the company got it under control.
