+ - Facebook tests "satire" tag to avoid confusion on News Feed

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "In an attempt to keep you from having to explain to your crazy aunt that despite what she read Vice President Biden *didn't* get a grow light delivered to the White House under a fake name, Facebook is testing a "satire" tag on news feeds. A Facebook representative issued the following statement to Ars Technica: "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.""
