Facebook adds `Satire` tag to fun articles
New York: For those who like parody news outlet The Onion and post those fun articles on Facebook, the social media website is going to add a "satire" tag with their news feed.
If a user clicks through an Onion article and returns to their news feed, they will be auto tagged with "Satire", Ars Technica reported.
This is how it works.
If a friend posts an Onion link to his or her Facebook feed, click on it for a laugh.
Once you are done at The Onion and come back to your desktop or laptop browser, Facebook will generate a box with that article`s headline and the word "satire" in brackets.
According to Facebook, "We are running a small test which shows the text `Satire` in front of links to satirical articles in the related articles unit in News Feed".
"This is because we received feedback that people wanted a clearer way to distinguish satirical articles from others in these units," a Facebook spokesperson told Ars Technica.
