Facebook will notify you before sharing Corona posts

In late June, the social network Facebook announced the launch of a new notification screen that notifies users when they try to share messages that have been posted for more than 90 days.

Facebook said on its blog at the time: “When we ask people what kind of news they want to see on Facebook, they keep telling us that they want reliable and up-to-date information. For this reason, we added a context button in 2018 that contains information on the source of the article in (Latest News). .

Facebook today announced a feature update to display notifications for users who want to share posts about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) COVID-19.

Facebook said: The notification will help people understand the freshness and source of the content before sharing it. It will also direct people to the Facebook (Covid-19) Information Center to make sure people from the global health sector have reliable information about the virus.

"With this in mind, we want to ensure that the spread of information from trusted health authorities is not slowed down. As a result, this announcement has not been sent to government health authorities and recognized global health organizations (such as the World Health Organization).) For the content posted. "

Facebook noted that over the past few months, internal research has found that article timing is an important part of context and can help users decide what they read, trust, and share. For companies in particular, news editors have raised concerns that sharing old stories as news on social media might misunderstand the status of the news. Some news publishers have taken steps to address this issue by featuring old articles on their websites. Prevent old messages from being used in a misleading manner.
