Facebook adds speed bump to slow down Covid-19 post virality
With its product decisions, Facebook is admitting the share button can do more harm than good.
Facebook is making people pause before they share links with Covid-19 related information.
The company is adding an interstitial that will make people stop and review context about links with Covid-19 information before they share it. The move adds much-needed friction into a process that has helped Covid-19 misinformation go viral on Facebook.
