In a study of over 6500 public posts on Facebook, over 40 percent were found to have false and misleading claims about vaccines. These posts were shared much more often than posts with accurate information, leading to increases in fear and negative perceptions of vaccination in general. When it comes to medical advice, it’s probably best to go to your doctor or pharmacist and not Twitter or Facebook.
