Facebook to warn users before they share outdated news | E&ampT Magazine

in hive-116221 •  last year 


Facebook has announced that it will begin showing notification screens to users who are about to share content which is more than 90 days old and could therefore be misleading when viewed out of context.

The new feature was announced by Facebook VP for Feed and Stories John Hegeman on the Facebook blog. Hegeman acknowledged that news taken out of context – including outdated news recirculating – plays a role in spreading misinformation, and that both users and publishers want information shared on Facebook to be timely and credible.
