TechBuzz: Facebook Working On A "False News" Feature

The social platform is looking to help it's users avoid fake news, and urges them to check their sources. 

According to Billboard, Facebook is looking to add a tips alert for a few days on "How To Spot Fake News" and what ways you can avoid falling into the trap of news that isn't legitimate.

Billboard shares: "Tips to spot false news include looking closely at website addresses to see if they are trying to spoof real news sites, and checking websites' 'about' sections for more information. Some sites might look like real news at first glance, but their "about" sections inform the visitor that they are in fact satire."

Most people know certain sites like The Onion are fake, but some people can't tell the difference, and end up sharing those stores, causing more and more issues when people only quickly scan their headlines.
