Facebook climate science information center – Searches on climate-related terms have been directed to the Climate Science Information Center in countries where it is available.
The Facebook Climate Science Information Center which was launched last September in France, Germany, U.K, and the U.S is being expanded to more countries and loaded with a lot more features.
It was stated in a Newsroom post by Facebook on Thursday that the Climate Science Information Center has gotten to Belgium, Brazil, Canada, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Mexico, the Netherlands, Nigeria, Spain, South Africa, and Taiwan.
If you notice, Australia wasn’t among the list aforementioned. It’s because the social network has historically tested and rolled out more features in Australia though, the ban on news content that is portrayed as a response to the countries proposed media bargaining law that’s tempered with a lot of pages that aren’t tied to news organizations including Facebook’s own page.
A section to the Climate Science Information Center was joined by Facebook which makes provision of facts to discredit common climate myths like claims of too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that causes harm to the plants life and global warming making polar bear populations to reduce.
Work is being carried out with experts from George Mason University, University of Cambridge and the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication.
Searches made regarding climate terms are already directed to the Climate Science Information Center in different countries where it’s available. Facebook on its own has decided to start moving people in other markets to the leading global environmental authority the UN Environment Programming.
Labels will be added to some climate-related posts in the U.K by social media directing individuals to the Climate Science Information Center and not just that, it plans to expand this to other countries too. Now that’s positive growth.
