10. Disseminate Health Information and Combat Misinformation

Social media can help health institutions to disseminate health information by rapidly sharing information with the population. Information about healthy living, immunization, disease outbreaks, prevention can be offered to populations via social media (Junhan & Wang, 2021).

Moreover, social media can potentially combat the spread of misinformation by refuting rumors, fact-checking algorithms, and optimization strategies to only display evidence-based health information to users (Junhan & Wang, 2021; Mheidly & Fares, 2020).
