Well, Facebook really shouldn't have to do this…but we guess the need was too great.
So, have y'all ever heard of a little website called The Onion?
They write some seriously HIGHlarious articles that are completely satirical and in NO WAY true whatsoever.
Which most people know because they have common sense.
Well, it seems that too many people post articles from the The Onion (and presumably other satire websites) thinking that they're actually real, truthful articles.
So Facebook is taking the steps to make sure users do not carry on believing these articles since they're not supposed to be taken seriously.
