New Delhi, Aug 17 IANS | 1 month ago

For those who like parody news outlet The Onion and post those fun articles on Facebook, the social media website is going to add a "satire" tag with their news feed.


If a user clicks through an Onion article and returns to their news feed, they will be auto tagged with "Satire", Ars Technica reported.

This is how it works.

If a friend posts an Onion link to his or her Facebook feed, click on it for a laugh.

Once you are done at The Onion and come back to your desktop or laptop browser, Facebook will generate a box with that article's headline and the word "satire" in brackets.

According to Facebook, "We are running a small test which shows the text 'Satire' in front of links to satirical articles in the related articles unit in News Feed".

"This is because we received feedback that people wanted a clearer way to distinguish satirical articles from others in these units," a Facebook spokesperson told Ars Technica.
