Test adds contextual ‘labels’ to popular Facebook pages

Facebook has started applying labels to pages as part of a new experiment. Politicians’ pages will be marked as “public official,” while fan and satire pages will also be labeled. The social network says the labels could help prevent the spread of fake news on the platform. Since Facebook has only started testing the feature, it may take some time before it can properly label posts.
