Facebook is currently having some trouble stopping the current anti-vaccine profile frame trend. On Friday, May 14, the social media giant company said that it released a new policy banning anti-vaccine messaging on the giant platform.

Facebook co-founder, Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill April 11, 2018 in Washington, DC. This is the second day of testimony before Congress by Zuckerberg, 33, after it was reported that 87 million Facebook users had their personal information harvested by Cambridge Analytica, a British political consulting firm linked to the Trump campaign.

Although this is the case, it seems like Facebook is still supporting any kind of customized frame, even if it promotes anti-vaccine.
One of the anti-vaccine profile frames has the message "MY IMMUNE SYSTEM WORKS BETTER THAN THE." This profile border also has some graphic syringes.

This information was specifically confirmed by a Facebook spokesperson. He added that this photo border violates the social media giant's policies and needs to be removed.

On the other hand, the Facebook spokesperson also confirmed that the social media company is now working on the issue to prevent further COVID-19 vaccine misinformation.

Are the Facebook Anti-Vaccine Profile Frames Still Posted?

According to CNBC's latest report, although Facebook already did some actions to remove the anti-vaccine profile frames, there are still some borders that are posted by some user accounts on the giant social media platform.

Some of them currently have messages such as "#NOTASHOT," "I TRUST MY IMMUNE SYSTEM!" and more.

"In countries where vaccines are available to most of the population, like the US and the UK," said Facebook.

"We ramped up our efforts to show people when their friends and neighbors share their support for vaccines through profile frames and stickers," added the social media giant.

As of the moment, the viral COVID-19 virus is still affecting some countries across the globe. If you are one of those who are not happy with the action of the anti-vaccine believers, there's also something you can do to help Facebook completely stop it.
