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

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."
