LifehackerChrome: Facebook has a very real fake news problem. To help combat this, B.S. Detector will show a little red warning when you're about to click a link that comes from a questionable, "satirical" or fake news source.
TechCrunchNot only is Facebook not providing little red warnings along with links to potentially specious news-it's now blocking links to the plugin that did. Over the past week, some Facebook users reported seeing content warnings next to links from established fake news domains, apparently without realizing a third party was responsible.
MotherboardLast night, TechCrunch ran a story purporting that Facebook was showing certain users red warning labels above fake news links. But as it happens, this wasn't Facebook's doing at all, but rather the work of a Chrome plugin called B.S. Detector, made by activist and independent journalist Daniel Sieradski.
