Facebook Launches Coronavirus Hub for Messenger

Social media giants are coming together to fight against the spread of coronavirus and misinformation on their platforms. Facebook had placed information hub on Instagram first and now they’re bringing it to their Messenger app as well.

The Coronavirus Community Hub is aimed at providing tips, authoritative information, and other resources to help stay connected and informed and curb the spread of the virus.

It is also aimed at stopping the spread of misinformation that has become common on the platform amidst the outbreak.

It provides details from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and UNICEF for reliable resources.
