Facebook will try to make sure you’ve read an article before you share it

Facebook is a platform designed for sharing, but with the amount of misinformation, fake news and just plain nonsense being shared on Facebook every day, it’s become a big problem.

On Monday, Facebook announced it will start testing a new feature that will nudge users to actually read an article before they share it. If you try to share a news article link that you haven’t opened, Facebook will show a prompt encouraging you to open it and read it.
