Today more than ever before, we’re relying on social media to stay informed. That’s why Facebook rolled out important policies and practices to help ensure the information we’re getting across their platforms is accurate and reliable, including the growing amount of information concerning COVID-19 vaccines.

Increasing fact-checking capabilities, investing in reliable news, removing false and harmful content, combatting COVID-19 misinformation, and connecting people to credible sources on Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp, are all part of Facebook’s enhanced efforts to ensure its users can click with trust.

But Facebook isn’t stopping there. They’re investing $100 million in small businesses, donating $25 million to support front-line workers, matching $20 million in donations to support community relief efforts, and putting $2 million into mental health crisis hotlines. Through these efforts and more, Facebook is stepping up to bring even more trust and reliability to our social media at a time when we need it most. facebook.com
