“Our internal research found that the news of an article is an important context that helps people decide what to read, trust and share,” Facebook wrote on his blog, noting that sharing old news on social media may misrepresent the reality of events.

Facebook said it will use a similar notification but for COVID-19 related posts to provide information about the source of a post and redirect people to the COVID-19 Information Center .
