So while trying to scan through Popular Science I saw one article that really caught my eye. It was "Mathematical Model Analyzes Facebook Networks to Prioritize Who Should Receive Vaccinations" It was posted on April 12th at 1 p.m. While trying to access the article I got what we know as a 404. I tried reading it at 9p.m when I came home from work and left the page opened till 1a.m not wanting it to disappear, it is still is not working. All the other articles can be read.

Hear is a screen shot of the article on the webpage so you can read the opening by yourself.

I bring this to your attention to point out that they are using the social network to target how to quickly stop a disease from spreading if they had a limited number of supplies.

But to the point of a conspiracy, this could also be used to quickly disperse a horrible disease and get it in circulation as fast as possible, with it getting into contact with as much people as possible. In a interesting note look at the tags in the picture.

I'm not one to worry much, but the fact that something like this was constructed, reported, and then just as quickly taken down. It defiantly raised my eyebrows.

Needless to say that this is something that we here on ATS should keep our eyes on. I would like some help getting the article so that I could read it in its entirety, as well as getting any thoughts or insight into this.
