Facebook to prompt some users to ’read before you share’

Facebook, in an effort to stem the flow of misinformation on it’s platform, has taken a leaf from Twitter’s book. Beginning this week, the social media giant will begin testing a program that will prompt some users to read a news article before sharing it, with a warning that they ’may be missing some key facts.’ Twitter implemented a similar policy last year.

Maybe NewsVoice should set up a system where you can’t comment without reading at least one story.

I think your foolish to read any news posted on social media, but Facebook and the like are blocking opposing views on their platforms.

This is only an attempt to create more money and sell advertisements. Don't worry, they don't care about your ''online opinion''.
