FACEBOOK SATIRE ALERT

 
FACEBOOK SATIRE ALERT
Posted August 19th, 2014 @ 10:17am

How many times a day do you see a news story in your Facebook feed that's so outrageous you can't tell if it's real or fake?

If the answer is "more than once," Facebook would like to fix that.

The social media site is testing out a new "satire" button that will let your friends know if "Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin Joining Qatar-Based Al Jazeera as a Commentator" is a real news story or not. (Hint: Even though a Washington Post journalist picked it up as a real story. It's not).

 

We're excited to say "so long!" to flame wars started by news headlines made up by comedians and trolls alike!
