Facebook wants to ensure you’ve read the article you’re going to share

Facebook has declared on Twitter that it will fire testing a pop-up that inquires as to whether they’re certain they need to share an article that they haven’t opened. The pop-up will incite clients to peruse the article, yet they can likewise decide to keep sharing it in the event that they need. A Facebook representative said the test would be carried out to 6 percent of Android clients around the world.

The popup is like Twitter’s, which it began testing in June 2020. Twitter’s implementation of the feature can be irritating to clients (myself included) who have perused the article somewhere else and choose to share it when they see it pop-up on their channel.

Facebook says the pop-up is intended to assist individuals with being educated about the articles they share, likely as an endeavor to battle the spread of falsehood the stage has battled with before. As the message cautions, not opening the article can prompt “missing key facts,” with features regularly not recounting the entire story.
