Facebook wants to make sure you’ve read the article you’re about to share

Facebook announced it will start testing a pop-up that will encourage users to read an article before sharing.

The intent of the pop-up is to help promote more informed sharing of news articles and to combat the spread of misinformation on the platform. The test will be rolled out to 6% of Android users worldwide.
