On Thursday, Facebook announced that it will be introducing a new feature on its site that will tell users before sharing an article that will be 90 days old.
The social networking site said in a statement that,
“Today, we’re starting to globally roll out a notification screen that will let people know when news articles they are about to share are more than 90 days old.”
This new feature will help people to make informed decisions about what to share on Facebook.
The statement continued to say,
“The notification screen will appear when people click the share button on articles older than 90 days, but will allow people to continue sharing if they decide an article is still relevant.”
For the social networking site, the timeliness of an article is very important before it should be shared.
