The Messenger Coronavirus (Covid-19) Community Hub Messenger From Facebook

Messenger From Facebook followed the lead of its parent company and corporate sibling WhatsApp with its rollout of the Messenger Coronavirus (Covid-19) Community Hub Thursday.

Messenger said in a blog post, “Messenger helps you feel together with the people you care about, even when you can’t be together. Right now, maintaining physical distance from others is critical to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Today, we’re launching the Messenger Coronavirus Community Hub with tips and resources to keep people connected to their friends, family, colleagues and community, and prevent the spread of misinformation.”

The new hub contains sections on coping with being physically separated from people users care about, supporting community, connecting with healthcare agencies and staying safe from scammers. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
