The social media giant spoke to BBC about the move, saying: “We are running a small test which shows the text ‘[Satire]’ in front of links to satirical articles in the related articled unit in News Feed. This is because we received feedback that people wanted a clearer way to distinguish satirical articles from others in these units.”
The tag will be tried out first by the company before they decide whether to make it a permanent fixture or not.
So, if you were one of the people confused by articles such as this, and even worse, commented on them, you have officially ruined all of our fun.
To make this news even more disappointing, site Literally Unebelievable, has been capturing people's reactions to The Onion. Needless to say, they are hilarious and we will miss them.
