A new feature of Facebook that can kick people out of a bad habit


The giant Facebook company decided to test a new feature that would rid people of a bad habit while browsing the site, according to global press reports.

The report, published on the technical website “Engadget”, indicated that Facebook is testing a new feature, through which it asks people to read articles before sharing them, so that users do not share articles they have not read and thus help spread misleading information.

This new feature of Facebook will alert the user, when he shares a link before reading it, with an urgent message saying “You are about to share this article without opening or reading it”, so that the user has options to either open the article or re-publish it as usual.

The Facebook platform may currently focus its testing range on news and articles on “Covid-19”.
