After Twitter previously issued a policy with the presence of a warning button regarding information disseminated and focused on the US presidential election, now it’s YouTube’s turn to issue a similar policy.
Youtube announced that it would remove videos containing false information or misinformation regarding the COVID-19 vaccine from Google’s video platform.
Youtube does not allow content about vaccines that conflicts with information from health experts or the World Health Organization (WHO). This is as stated by YouTube spokesperson, Farshad Shadloo, quoted from The Verge on Thursday (15/20/2020).
“A vaccine for COVID-19 may be in the near future, therefore we ensure we have the right policies to be able to remove misinformation related to the COVID-19 vaccine,” he said.
False rumors or misinformation regarding vaccines, including claims that vaccines have microchips implanted in the human body or cause infertility.
The new guidelines are an extension of the COVID-19 medical misinformation policy already on YouTube. The policy does not allow videos that falsely claim that the coronavirus does not exist or that say it is not contagious.
YouTube demonetized a video campaigning for anti-vaccination in 2019.
Meanwhile, Facebook also recently announced tough action against anti-vaccination content by not allowing ads that block vaccinations.
“We don’t want ads like this on our platform,” Facebook said. However, uploads from the anti-vaccine group will still be permitted.
WhatsApp Web Will Get Video Call and Voice Capabilities Soon
WhatsApp web can do many things like the mobile version. Instant messaging services can send and receive messages, photos, videos, and documents.
For the most part, the WhatsApp web can perform quite well as a Messenger service. However, one downside of this platform is the lack of voice and video call support.
However, everything changed immediately. According to a report from WABetaInfo, they found some evidence that suggests WhatsApp Web will soon introduce video and voice calling capabilities.
Basically, the presence of video and voice calls is not too surprising. In fact, the surprising thing is that it has taken time so far to introduce capabilities, as quoted from Ubergizmo, Thursday (22/10/2020).
WhatsApp is a messaging service owned by Facebook. Well, the Facebook Messenger service already offers a similar feature on the desktop along with other messaging clients.
So, it’s more of a matter of when than whether the feature will come to WhatsApp Web. In today’s video conferencing era when it comes to working and school, video call and voice features are needed as an alternative.
This is How many words ‘5G’ was spoken at the Apple event last October
Apple has recently officially announced the presence of its newest smartphone, the iPhone 12 Series, which comes with a number of updates. But the main thing that Apple emphasizes on the iPhone 12 is support for 5G networks.
Yes, Apple is very pleased that they have finally been able to bring 5G support to its iPhone where other smartphone manufacturers have actually started releasing 5G smartphones from the end of 2019.
Despite having to sacrifice a screen that still doesn’t have a 120Hz refresh rate, Apple is apparently quite proud of their iPhone 12 that it says the word ‘5G’ too often.
Recently, a Twitter user by the name of OnlyTechAE has uploaded a video showing a cut of a presentation at the Apple Event on October 14, 2020 yesterday where Apple officials said the word ‘5G’.
The video also shows how many words ‘5G’ was spoken in the presentation. Where these words were spoken by Apple officials to their own CEO, Tim Cook.
One Twitter user also took the time to count how many words ‘5G’ were spoken in the presentation. As a result, there were 68 mentions of the word ‘5G’ in the presentation. This certainly makes a lot of laughs seeing how Apple is very proud of 5G.

“We have started the Asia Pacific fact-checking program, in collaboration with industry-leading fact-checkers, AFP and Lead Stories,” said Director, Trust & Safety, TikTok, Asia Pacific, adapted from the TikTok website, Friday (16/10/2020).

Then, TikTok is also said to have implemented a system to allow users to easily report misinformation in the application. Not only that, but he also expanded an internal team that is responsible for detecting and preventing misinformation and disinformation.
