FB ‘Context’ button to fight fake news

On Thursday Facebook said that it was a new testing “button” to allow a user to get more context about the news source, in the latest move by the leading social media network to curb misinformation.

The new feature will allow the user to get context from the source of the news article with a single click without leaving Facebook news feed.

“We are testing a button that people can tap to easily access additional information without needing to go elsewhere,” said a Facebook blog post signed by Product Managers Andrew Anker, Sara Su and Jeff Smith.
