Facebook wants to reduce fake news
Facebook has announced, through its Twitter account, its new function. Every time you want to share a news item that you have not opened or read, the social network will show you a pop-up window in which it will ask you if you are sure you want to publish it.
Starting today, we’re testing a way to promote more informed sharing of news articles. If you go to share a news article link you haven’t opened, we’ll show a prompt encouraging you to open it and read it, before sharing it with others. pic.twitter.com/brlMnlg6Qg

You will also have the option to share the note without reading it, but the goal is to reduce false news and misinformation; therefore the request that you make sure you are posting something true on your wall.
This function is very similar to the one that Twitter launched in 2020 to prevent you from retweeting news without reading it first. WhatsApp has also developed a similar option.
On Facebook, this feature will first have a trial period with a small percentage of Android users. It is expected that it will soon be included in the next updates of the app.
Do you think this measure reduces fake news?
